Sigi Schmid has already started LA Galaxy rebuilding plans

LA Galaxy head coach Sigi Schmid has begun the club's rebuilding plans for the next campaign after they were ousted from the playoff race.

Galaxy's elimination was officially confirmed on Wednesday night after FC Dallas' 2-0 triumph over Colorado Rapids rendered the Galaxy's 3-3 draw versus Houston Dynamo academic.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with ESPN FC, Schmid admitted that the evaluating period of his players is ongoing following a dismal campaign in Major League Soccer, he said: "There needs to be some work done down the middle of the field. We started the looking process [for new players]. Certainly, it's not completed at this stage, but we have started the process of looking at things."

LA Galaxy Bring in Dominic Kinnear As Assistant Coach

LA Galaxy manager Sigi Schmid has brought in Dominic Kinnear as the assistant manager. This is widely seen as a move designed to help the club recover from an astonishingly poor run of form.

Galaxy have been pushed to the 10th place in the Western Conference table after a string of nine matches without a victory. The last win for Galaxy was back in June when they managed a close victory over Colorado Rapids. Since then, the team has suffered a string of defeats in all competitions. Even after the arrival of Sigi Schmid as the new manager, this form shows no signs of reviving.

LA Galaxy likely to play hardball over Ashley Cole amid Birmingham City interest

Major League Soccer club LA Galaxy are unlikely to permit the sale of defender Ashley Cole to Birmingham City this summer as he is considered as a key part of their first-team plans.

The former Chelsea and Arsenal defender has emerged as a summer target for the Blues with manager Harry Redknapp plotting looking to add more experience to his squad ahead of a promotion push.


LA Galaxy coach Curt Onalfo said that his team has no intention of letting Ashley Cole leave the club. He said that the former Arsenal and Chelsea defender is an important member of the team and that he is still counting on him.

This statement will reassure LA Galaxy fans after reports suggested that the player might be returning to England with Birmingham City amongst the clubs interested in the player.

Chelsea’s search for the next Ashley Cole continues as Alex Sandro Snubs Move

LA Galaxy hold trials for aspiring footballers in north London

Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy brought some of their best coaches to north London in order to hold trials for late bloomers potentially trying to make it in professional football.

The incongruous setting was made just outside of Barnet FC, where two AstroTurf pitches were used for the trials. The Western Conference placed charges of around £150 for each player willing to attend in order to ward off the chances.


Ashley Cole scored an own goal that hurt his team LA Galaxy.

The former Three Lions star made a mistake that helped opponents Seattle Sounders to a 3-0 victory – Galaxy’s fifth defeat in seven games.

Ashley Cole Confirms No Retirement Plans As of Now

Ashley Cole has confirmed that he has no plans of retirement as of yet, and that he is only focusing on winning more games and trophies in his career.

The LA Galaxy defender is in the twilight of his career. After failing to secure a spot at Roma, he moved to LA Galaxy where he has been a regular first-team player. After having won so many trophies in his career including the Champions League, the defender has been struggling for form in recent times. He has joined LA Galaxy in a difficult period of time, as the club has been unable to reclaim the former glory days.
