He will be replaced on an interim basis by Dominic Kinnear for the remainder of the season.

Te Kloese added: “The LA Galaxy is a club that is built on winning on the field and being representative of the championship mentality and pedigree that you expect in Los Angeles.

“As a club, we have a collective responsibility and we all must share the blame for the club’s current standing.

“I take responsibility for the poor results and believe that we can find the right way forward for this team and our club.”
