The Washington clubs co-owner is aware that the current situation needs fixing as Ben Olsen's side sits at the foot of MLS with just four points from eight outings and he insists that there is intent from an ownership viewpoint to help improve things.
"It's been painful," Levien said.
"However, we are also cognizant we are only eight games into the season. It does force you to re-evaluate your personnel and your plan, and part of that may mean making moves. But we don't want to make knee-jerk decisions either.
"We are willing to spend what it takes to be competitive at the upper echelons of the league. The revenue streams are still not there, but while we are mindful of that, we want to win. And we owe it to our fans and our own competitive nature to assemble a roster that can compete with anyone in the league."
