FRISCO, Texas -- LA Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena addressed reporters following his club's 2-1 defeat to FC Dallas. 

(On conceding two goals late in the game...)

ARENA: “We didn’t do well at the end of the game in the last 15 minutes or so, and that’s my responsibility. When a team plays that poorly on the road, they’re not well coached. We blew a lot of points this week, we could have stolen six points this week, and we walked away with one. That’s my responsibility; I have not done a good job with this team to get them tactically ready for games.”  

(On what he has to do to get the players to be better late..)

ARENA:"Train and get them to think when they're tired. We should not have lost that game tonight."

(On Gyasi Zardes' goal perhaps kick starting his confidence...)

ARENA: "Let's hope. Let's hope." 

(On the LA goal that was nullified by an offside call...)
ARENA: "I think the ball hit Tommy Meyer in an offside position."
(On losing Dan Gargan to yellow card accumulation suspension...)
ARENA: "We'll have someone else ready to go." 
(On the game as a whole...)
ARENA: "We played well for 75 minutes, we played poorly for 15."

Incoming LA Galaxy midfielder Steven Gerrard will lead Liverpool FC against their bitter rivals Chelsea for the final time this Sunday, but before he faces off against the Blues for one last time, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho made sure that the Liverpool skipper knew just how he felt after years of heated rivalry.

In his pregame press conference, the always affable Mourinho waxed poetic about Gerrard, calling the Liverpool midfielder his "most favorite enemy" and stating that facing players of his caliber helped him become a "better manager." Mourinho also revealed that he attempted to sign Gerrard three times during his stints at Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid, but each time Gerrard opted to stay with Liverpool due to his loyalty for the club.

Watch Mourinho's complete comments above.

FRISCO, Texas. -- The LA Galaxy announced the signing of former U.S. youth international midfielder Sebastian Lletget on Friday

A 22-year-old left-footed midfielder, Lletget spent the last five years with West Ham United making just a single first appearance in an FA Cup match a year ago. Although Northern California native was mostly limited U-21 matches with the Hammers, Lletget does boast considerable youth international experience having suited up for the U.S. U-17's, U-20's and U-23's. 

To acquire Lletget, the Galaxy sent $50,000 in allocation money to the New England Revolution for the player's discovery rights.  

"He's a good young player who is going to help us in the midfield. He can play on the inside or out wide. He's a player that will obviously help our depth in the midfield and hopefully, he can develop into a good player in our league," Arena said on Friday. "We'll obviously need to see him in our environment for a while before we can determine where he's going to fit in but he's a player with good potential."

SANDY, Utah -- No disrespect to wild way that the LA Galaxy's scoreless draw with Real Salt Lake, but the real fireworks -- or should we say lightning strikes? -- happened prior to the match when the game was delayed for more than an hour due to severe weather in the area. 

The delay began before the national anthem was completed at Rio Tinto Stadium as a lightning bolt struck the Earth just miles from the stadium. The bolt set off a cry from the crowd -- and a slightly panicked tweet from this reporter -- as the officials delayed the game for 62 minutes before action was finally able to begin

Did the delay -- which required the players to warm up twice -- have any impact on the quality of the game? Quite possibly admits Galaxy forward Alan Gordon but even if it did, it was no excuse for a disappointing showing from the Galaxy attack. 

“It is difficult. But we all were professional about it and got going. Maybe it had a factor on the game and maybe it didn’t," Gordon said. "But we stuck together as a team and that’s the most important thing. We’re going to Dallas unbeaten in five games and we’re going to try and get three points.”

Arena's thoughts on the match are below. 

(On the match overall...)

(On His feelings on the defensive performance of his team…)

ARENA: “Yes for the most part but at the end but with some fatigue and we made some mistakes so that wasn’t good. The guys fought for 90 minutes. It was a tough night with all the circumstances around the conditions. Nothing great. We’re not going to market this one.”

(On the game’s ending..)

ARENA: “We’ll take the point and get out of here.

(On if he was disappointed with Juninho missing the penalty…)

ARENA: “Whatever.”

(On Omar Gonzalez’s performance…)

ARENA: “Omar did well; we had a bunch of guys playing hurt. We’re missing a lot of players so to come here and battle while dealing with the altitude and conditions, and to get a point, I can’t complain. We’ll get a couple guys back for Saturday, and I expect the same kind of effort.”

The LA Galaxy may finally be adding another attacking midfielder to their arsenal.'s Ives Galarcep reported on Wednesday morning that the former U.S. youth international Sebastian Lletget will be signing with the Galaxy on a free transfer from English club West Ham. To sign Lletget, Galarcep reports that the Galaxy will need to send allocation money to the New England Revolution who placed a discovery claim on the 22-year-old mifielder. 

A native of San Francisco, California, Lletget spent the last five years with the Hammers but was unable to make an English Premier League appearance for the club. Lletget's lone first team showing came in the 2014 FA Cup competition. Although Lletget did not feature much for West Ham, the midfielder boasts U.S. youth international experience at the U-17, U-20 and U-23 levels. 

A central midfielder who can also play out wide, Lletget's reported signing could bring depth to a Galaxy attack that has dealt with injuries to Robbie Keane and Jose Villarreal in recent weeks.

CARSON, Calif. -- Ignacio Maganto impressed many in his first MLS start against the Colorado Rapids, but now the young Spanish midfielder is hoping for more as the LA Galaxy embark on an eight day, two game road trip. 

In his first ever regular season appearance for the Galaxy, the 23-year-old was incredibly active against Colorado providing energy for a Galaxy attack that was otherwise listless until Alan Gordon's late goal. After the match, Galaxy boss Bruce Arena had high praise for the youngster stating that he played exceptionally well in his first start

Although his debut earned him plenty of plaudits from the team and media alike, Maganto knows that he can improve. 

"I felt comfortable against Colorado, but I know that I can do better. I want to keep improving every day," Maganto said. "I want to be more dangerous in front of goal and get some chances in front of the net." 

As he looks to build upon his showing against Colorado, Maganto is confident that he can have an impact against Real Salt Lake if given a chance to feature on Wednesday.

"I have a lot of confidence," he said. "I'm going to do my best to make the team even more confident so that I can play more and help the team get wins."
