It’s been a tough relationship since the beginning. The Galaxy went 6-10-4 and had the worst home record in all of Major League Soccer.
Many supporters have been calling for this move for a long time, and well it is finally here, it is happening.
Schmid’s first game in charge of the Galaxy will be against the club that let him go last season, the Seattle Sounders.
