Bruce Arena has been handed the keys to the Galaxy.
No, he’s not Luke Skywalker, just the man tasked with straightening out the Los Angeles Galaxy after being named head coach and general manager on Monday.
Arena will jump right into the task of reshaping LA into a team capable of not only reaching the playoffs, but also making a run to MLS Cup. The first order of business could be to deal Guatamalan striker Carlos Ruiz. Sources have told SBI that Ruiz could be dealt as soon as Thursday, which would be in time for the Galaxy to add Eddie Lewis after clearing at least part of Ruiz’s salary off of its cap.
I’ll ask the same question I have asked a few times already, only this time with a poll tool so we can see just what the SBI Mafia thinks of Arena’s appointment.
