imageLOS ANGELES: The Los Angeles Galaxy on Tuesday named Curt Onalfo as their new head coach to replace Bruce Arena.

Onalfo, a former Galaxy player in the club's inaugural season in Major League Soccer in 1996, takes up the job after a successful stint with Los Angeles Galaxy II in the United Soccer League.

The Brazilian-born coach, 47, joined the Galaxy coaching staff in 2011 prior to their victories in the 2011 and 2012 MLS Cups.

He was appointed head of LA Galaxy II for the team's inaugural season in 2014, steering the team to three successive playoff berths.

He also spent a period as an assistant coach for the US men's national team, helping the team win the CONCACAF Gold Cup in 2005 while qualifying for the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

"I am extremely excited and honored to become head coach of the LA Galaxy," Onalfo said in a statement.

"From my time as a player and a coach here, I know that this is the preeminent soccer club in the United States and I look forward to leading this team going forward."

Onalfo joins the Galaxy with the club facing a period of transition after the departures of Robbie Keane and Steven Gerrard.

The club's last MLS Cup victory came in 2014.
