​The Los Angeles Galaxy franchise is slowly beginning their rebuild. 


After losing head coach Bruce Arena -- who moved on to coach the USMNT in the 2018 World Cup Qualifiers -- and two Designated Players like Steven Gerrard and Robbie Keane, the franchise needs to turn things around if they want to remain competitive. 


And their first move was to announce Pete Vagenas as their new general manager.


Vagenas' first task will be to find a new coach to replace Arena.

​​Vagenas was a former LA Galaxy player and the club originally drafted him in 2000, and he was the VP of Soccer Operations for the team. He's reportedly familiar with the duties of a GM and it is believed he will be the perfect man for the transition of the franchise.


On the other hand, this will be his first crack at being a GM and he will have the task of reconstructing a roster that's full of holes. They have talented players like Gyasi Zardes and Giovani dos Santos, but on the same note, they'll have two DP spots open and a need to strengthen the side on both ends of the pitch.

It’s been rumored that the person in the best position to get the head coaching job is LA Galaxy assistant coach and LA Galaxy II head coach, Curt Onalfo. It will be up to Chris Klein and Vagenas to determine if another internal promotion is warranted or if the team is better off going outside the club.

It's certainly time for the franchise to make big decisions.
