Major League Soccer announced Wednesday that Los Angeles Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena will manage the 2010 MLS All-Stars against English powerhouse Manchester United on July 28 at Houston's Reliant Stadium.

The responsibility of coaching the all-star team is given to the coach with the highest points per game average in league play through June 27. With a record of 10-1-3, for 33 points and an average of 2.6 points per game, the Galaxy earned the honor for Arena.

With the Galaxy hosting the Puerto Rico Islanders in the CONCACAF Champions League on July 27, Arena has asked Houston Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear to lead training sessions before the match and serve as the assistant coach on match day.

Excited to see Manchester United come to America? Think that the MLS All-Stars will defeat them? Intrigued by the Arena-Sir Alex Ferguson coaching matchup?
