LA Galaxy midfielder/forward Mike Magee says he is delighted with the spirit of the players at his new team.
Despite the fact there are many fresh faces around, Magee is happy that the players are prepared to fight for each other and also paid tribute to Arena.
"(Bruce Arena) definitely did his research," said Magee.
"He got some guys from his past that he trusts and we haven't really skipped a beat on how we are in the locker room. It's translated onto the field.
"Sometimes on the field we're still not sure quite what to do because we haven't played together that long, but in terms of fighting and battling for each other, it's second to none.
"Since I've arrived, it's been great," he added.
"Not all of the results have gone our way, but I think Bruce has done an incredible job of getting a great group of guys, both young and old, who have come together and buy into how he wants this organization to run.
"I wasn't here last year, but I can tell you from talking to the guys who were here, the attitude has changed."
