Not only did the team fire Schelotto, the team also fired assistant coaches Ariel Pereyra and Juan José Romero. Performance coach Javier Valdecantos was also fired.
“Based on results, we have decided to go in a different direction,” LA Galaxy General Manager Dennis te Kloese said. “The LA Galaxy is a club that is built on winning on the field and being representative of the championship mentality and pedigree that you expect in Los Angeles. As a club, we have a collective responsibility and we all must share the blame for the club’s current standing.
“I take responsibility for the poor results and believe that we can find the right way forward for this team and our club.”
The 47-year-old has been the Galaxy’s head coach since the 2019 season. He went 21-26-6, including 5-11-3 during the 2020 MLS Regular Season.
