    Admittedly I don't know much about him, but I think I can get behind Polenta.

    Same here. They said the magic words: CB.

    ....and it keeps getting better!

    L
    OS ANGELES (Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2019) – The LA Galaxy announced today that Guillermo Barros Schelotto has hired Juan José Romero as the club’s Goalkeeper Coach.

    Romero, 39, joins Schelotto and the Galaxy after serving on his staff for two and a half seasons at Boca Juniors. Prior to that, Romero was a member of the Argentina National Team staff. He worked for four years with La Albiceleste, ending his national team stint with a runner-up finish in the 2014 FIFA World Cup.


    Romero and recently announced assistant coaches Gustavo Barros Schelotto, Ariel Pereyra, and fitness coach Javier Valdecantos all join Guillermo from Boca Juniors, where they won two Argentine Primera División championships together.

    When the Galaxy hired general manager Dennis te Kloese away from the Mexican soccer federation and signed Argentine Guillermo Barros Schelotto to be their new coach, the hope was the two men would exploit their deep ties in Latin America to strengthen their new team.

    That already appears to be happening with the Galaxy confirming Friday they are near to a deal to get Mexican winger Uriel Antuna on a loan from Manchester City and are close to signing Uruguayan Diego Polenta, a left-footed center back.

    Both deals could be announced before the Galaxy open preseason training camp Monday.

    Antuna, 21, a direct winger who can play on either side, moved to Europe from Santos Laguna in 2017. He spent the last 18 months on loan to Dutch side FC Groningen before being returned to Manchester City earlier this month.

    Polenta, 26, played for two Uruguayan age-group national teams and was most recently with Nacional, which he helped to two Uruguayan first-division titles. He fills a need on a team that lacks depth on its back line.


    When the two players sign, it would leave the Galaxy with nine international players, one over the MLS limit. The team could get below that number by loaning out players — midfielder Joao Pedro spent part of last season on loan with Apollon Smyrni of the Greece Super League — or by having players obtain green cards.

    What a turn-around for this club!

    Amazing what happens when a club installs real international professionals to run it.

    Well, don't forget that we also had Ruud Gullit, and that was a disaster!

    One of the differences this time around — hopefully for the better — is that Schelotto has MLS experience as a player.

    Agreed. Dom being on his staff also is a big help in the MLS department.

    You won't have to worry about Vela for a bit. He's on loan to Barcelona for 6 months
