New president Klein intent on keeping LA Galaxy at the forefront of MLS

LA Galaxy president Chris Klein is determined to keep the club at the very top of the MLS game both on and off the pitch.

The 37-year old former Galaxy and USA midfielder was appointed as the new club president last week but insists that nothing has changed in terms of the plans of the back-to-back MLS champions.

"The vision that we've had since last year stays the same," Klein told

"We've progressed our organization significantly over the past year, in terms of season tickets, in terms of how we're building the business of the Galaxy, and that vision will stay the same.

"We want to continue to be the flag-bearer for MLS. We were the first to sign a Designated Player. We've won back-to-back championships. On the field we've been innovative. We've helped drive this league forward.

"Our league has the goal of being among the best leagues in the world by 2022. To do that, they need the Galaxy to lead the way."
