The LA Galaxy, a Major League Soccer franchise, announced the departure of team president Chris Klein on Tuesday. Klein’s tenure was marred by criticism over the team’s underwhelming performance, leading to fan boycotts of home matches.
The decision to part ways with Klein was made in the interest of returning the club to its expected level of success. The team currently sits at the bottom of the MLS Western Conference, with only two wins and a meager goal-scoring record. Despite Klein’s long association with the organization, the fans’ discontent and ongoing protests ultimately led to his departure.
