DC United head coach Ben Olsen has been named as the coach for the MLS All-Star team for this year’s meeting with European champions Chelsea.

The MLS select will take on the Blues at PPL Park in Pennsylvania on July 25 and Olsen, who has his United side on top of the Eastern Conference, will be the man to oversee things for the league.

A humble Olsen, in just his second year of head coaching, preferred to share his selection with his coaching staff who have guided the Washington club to have the second best record in MLS so far this season.

"It's recognition for my staff," Olsen said. "[They] have done a great job, always helping out a young coach and [always] keeping this place afloat."
