On Friday at the historic Natural History Museum in Los Angeles, one of the newest MLS teams LAFC announced their first head coach in Bob Bradley.

 

The 59-year-old won an MLS Cup in 1998 with the Chicago Fire, and spent three seasons coaching the New York/New Jersey MetroStars before his time with Chivas USA. He left MLS as one of the winningest coaches in league history.

 

During the press conference Bradley emphasized how he would bring excitement to the fans of LAFC and the city. As the 23,000 seat Banc of California stadium is almost nearing completion, Bradley and the franchise look to build a winner from the ground up.

 

LAFC is expected to step in and immediately put pressure on the LA Galaxy despite the Galaxy's two-decade dominance in the market. This club has their work truly cut out for them, with endless possibilities.
