    @DelmyBarillas

    ^^^ Has a great video interview with Ibra. It appears that he wants to return to the Galaxy.


    As far as staying in LA, Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he has “demands” that he has already addressed with the FO and that he’s feeling confident. Says that yes, other teams have expressed interest but that his sole focus is the @LAGalaxy.
    Zlatan says that part of the reason he was so frustrated after the last game of the season was because he could not comprehend what had happened (3-2 loss against Houston). Also emphasized on the fact that fans deserved a lot better and that’s what made him so upset. #LAGalaxy

    So far I like what I hear from Zlatan. We'll see what happens.

    It appears Ibra really wants to win and be competitive....not just him but the team as well.

    My conspiracy theory is that his demands are a DP spot, and the club has told him he will get it.
    In the mean time the club has to figure out which DP to drop. Sure Gio is the obvious choice, but getting rid of him/eating that kind of contract will be tough.

    When push comes to shove, Ibra is more valuable to the Galaxy than any of the DP's on the roster, not to mention his value for MLS.

    My 2nd conspiracy theory is that he has made demands of the FO regarding the type of team & coaching staff they will field next season.
    I'm sure he as made it very clear about the lack of defense quality on the roster, and how much he didn't care for Sigi.

    Despite his public persona, Ibra has shown to be a solid team player on the pitch, sometimes to a fault, although that appeared to be better for the club in the long run. I am really looking forward to another season with him on the Galaxy. I am sure I mentioned this before, but I was skeptical of him. Well, he has proven his worth in ways I never anticipated.

    Uncle Phil doesn't have to bankroll the whole league anymore, so hopefully the Galaxy can afford to burn a little cash if need be.

    If Ibra is demanding a specific manager, I hope it's not Ruud Gullit. :D

    I like Klein, and I'm fine with keeping him as president but insulating him from soccer operations. That reminds me: my friend and I used to just harshly scream "KLEIN!!!!!" at least once a game when he was on the pitch. It just has a great sound to it. He would smile and acknowledge occasionally.

    That also reminds me: When I first started taking my mom to the matches (and she knows NOTHING about soccer), one of the first things she asked was,"Why does that guy keep passing the wrong direction?" It was Vagenas. Haha! It's great to watch sports with my mom.

    and this: https://www.lagconfidential.com/2018...2UmeJV3CmwLbWc

    Yesterday LA Galaxy President Chris Klein confirmed the club have spoken with a number of domestic and international candidates for the VP of Soccer Operations job, and today a name has emerged: Dennis te Kloese.
    . He served as director of soccer for now-defunct MLS side Chivas USA – at the time Guadalajara’s sister club – from 2005-08,
    IX to the NAY

    Many are saying his work as Academy Director for Tigres years back is what has made Tigres so good today.

    Again dunno all that much, but there are some real good things about him.

    even more hot rumors:
    There’s a low rumble coming out of US soccer circles that Gregg Berhalter is now equally likely to end up with the #LAGalaxy as he is with #USMNT.
    https://twitter.com/24thminute/statu...88831%2Fpage-8

    My feeling is Dennis te Kloese is taking too long to make a decision.
    It's gonna be pure panic mode of the G's don't have a head of soccer operations/GM by very early December.
    Perhaps with te Kloese dragging his feet, the G's are pursuing a fall back position with Berhalter. Would he be coach and GM?
    The front office is a train wreck. One would have thought they would have had a head of soccer operations/GM and coach by now....and heck, even Zlatan wrapped up.


    Sidebar: Word is that the G's can't really do anything with Gio until January.....that puts Ibra in a holding pattern until January.
    There has got to be some sort of informal agreement that Ibra will get what he wants/his demands, and that he should hang tight for a few months a trust Klein to get it done.
    Why would anyone trust Klein at this point?

    If no news comes out of the Galaxy in the next week or so, consider 2019 another disaster. These guys can't get anymore inept.

    Per Kevin Baxter:
    @kbaxter11

    The @LAGalaxy have exercised contract options on Sebastian Lletget, Daniel Steres, Bradford Jamieson IV and Justin Vom Steeg

    That also means the @LAGalaxy DID NOT exercise options on Michael Ciani, Brian Sylvestre, Ariel Lassiter, Sheanon Williams, Ashley Cole, Rolf Feltscher, Baggio Husidic and Servando Carrasco. Contract talks are underway with Chris Pontius, Dave Romney and Emmanuel Boateng.

    Here's the @LAGalaxy roster: GK: Bingham, Vom Steeg D: Skjelvik, Hilliard-Arce, Arellano, Steres MF: Alessandrini, J. dos Santos, Kitchen, Pedro, Lletget, Jamieson F: Ibra, Kamara, G. dos Santos, Alvarez

    Curious (not really), who is making the roster decisions? Considering there is no head coach or GM in place.......
