LA Galaxy Fire Coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto

Last week, LA Galaxy GM Dennis te Kloese said that his club’s head coach, Guillermo Barros Schelotto, was “very committed to making something out of this,” referring to the team’s last-place status and the headline-grabbing inability of superstar Designated Player Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernández to find his footing in MLS.

Then the Galaxy were thumped, 5-2, by the Portland Timbers on Wednesday night, and Schelotto’s commitment became irrelevant. Te Kloese couldn’t wait any longer. Schelotto was fired Thursday, becoming the second straight LA manager to be dismissed in less than two seasons since Bruce Arena departed in 2016.
