The LA Galaxy manager Bruce Arena has said that he is extremely disappointed with the red card given to the striker Robbie Keane in the 5-2 win over Isidro Metapan. The former Aston Villa and Tottenham striker Robbie Keane is regarded as one of the best players in the MLS. Now, Bruce Arena will have to do without the striker for the next few matches after he was sent off in the match against Isidro Metapan. Robbie Keane had earlier scored in the match in the 22nd minute to give LA Galaxy the lead in the match. From then on in, the club went from strength to strength in the match.
However, the start of the match was extremely difficult because LA Galaxy conceded a 17th min goal. They, however, showed great character to not only equalise within a few moments, but also go ahead in the match due to the presence of Robbie Keane. From then, it was total domination from LA Galaxy, who built a 5-2 lead in the match. The only sore point from the match was the red card to Robbie Keane, which will mean that he will miss crucial matches in the forthcoming days.
“Making a transition into this circus sometimes is unbelievable. It’s very difficult on MLS teams. I sometimes wonder why we spend all the resources and time we do in this competition when sometimes it looks really bizarre. I don’t know. The ref missed the call and typical, we’ve seen in these competitions, the referees think they’re bigger than the game itself and they’ve got to put themselves ahead of everything, I guess he felt he should not be, I don’t know. They didn’t explain anything to us,” said the LA Galaxy manager Bruce Arena after the match that leaves him with out Robbie Keane.
