Philadelphia Union striker Carlos Ruiz feels his former club is in trouble despite sitting on top of the Western Conference table.
Ruiz has had two different spells with the LA Galaxy, from 2002-2005 and again in 2008, and ahead of the meeting with the club this weekend, he has said that he thinks the Galaxy are struggling.
They meet Ruiz's Union on Wednesday night and the Guatemalan striker says he is not impressed by what the Galaxy have produced so far this term.
"The Galaxy have great players that can make a difference, I have no doubt about that," Ruiz toldMLSsoccer.com.
"But when they play as a team, they have a lot of mistakes.
"From my point of view, LA Galaxy is in trouble right now. They've played more games than any other team. They are going to come here and try to do something about it, but we are in a better position than them.
"We're going to try to play smart this game so we can be in first place in the East."
