When the world’s most famous footballer, David Beckham, arrived in Major League Soccer in 2007, his arrival put the league on the map and cemented the LA Galaxy as a Young League superteam. During Beckham’s tenure, the Galaxy made three appearances in the MLS Cup, winning two of them, giving off Hollywood glamour, and making waves around the world.
It is therefore surprising that the Galaxy have had their worst record in the league this season with just two wins from 14 games. In response, the team on Tuesday fired longtime chairman Chris Klein, who also played alongside Beckham for the Galaxy after missing the playoffs in four of the past five seasons.
Klein’s sacking was announced after months of outcry from die-hard fans angry at the club’s directive. Several supporter groups called for Mr Klein’s dismissal and threatened to boycott the match. Some are already doing so.Galaxy attendance is declining about 10 percent This reflects both the team’s poor on-field performance and the simmering anger among fans.
Galaxy coach Greg Vanny said: “There is a solution and we hope that the group of supporters who are really important to all of us and to our players will find the right way and get involved, whatever the solution is.” said. told ESPN in February. “Because it probably won’t be ‘Chris Out’.”
Chris is out now. “We have embarked on a comprehensive process to seek new leadership to bring the club back to the level our fans and partners have come to expect,” said AEG President Dan Beckerman. I believe it will,” he said. The team’s parent company said in announcing Klein’s departure: Bunny will remain in his coaching position, the team said.
The Galaxy’s last MLS win came in 2014, their third in four years, and the team has not won a notable year since. Last year’s playoff appearance, which was the first in three seasons, ended in the conference semifinals.
The team that defeated the Galaxy at that stage was particularly upset. It was the new club in town, Los Angeles FC. Although they joined the league in 2018, they have already won more honors than the league in trophy cases (three). Galaxy has done so in the last decade.
LAFC has twice won the Supporters’ Shield, which is awarded to the team with the best regular-season record, and won its first MLS Cup last season. They have reached the final of this year’s Concacaf Champions League and will face Mexican club León in a home-and-home series for the regional club championship this week.
The Galaxy, on the other hand, is a marvel. This season’s team is the worst 2-9-3 in the league with a goal difference of -14. The Galaxy went on to lose three league games in a row without scoring a goal on Wednesday night. After Saturday’s final 1-0 home defeat to Charlotte, fans shouted “I want to do better!”
LAFC’s Dennis Buanga leads the MLS with 10 goals, while Galaxy’s leading scorer Dejan Jovežić has two. Among the Galaxy’s biggest players underperforming are Mexican striker Javier Hernández, better known as Chicharito, and Brazil’s Douglas Costa, who has scored in four appearances.Costa too Arrest crisis in Brazil Allegations of non-payment of child support came to light this week.
Klein had other problems late last year. He was suspended in the offseason after MLS admitted he had breached his contract.

Even if the fans are back, it may take time to regain its glory.
