CARY, N.C. -- LA Galaxy assistant coach and reserve team coach Curt Onalfo will lead the LA Galaxy against the Carolina RailHawks on Wednesday in their U.S. Open Cup third round match up, Onalfo told the media on Tuesday.
Onalfo has served as the club's reserve league head coach for three years.
“It’s not about me. It’s all about our players; it’s an opportunity for these guys as it always is when this group of players step on the field. It’s their opportunity to step up the ladder,” Onalfo told reporters following the club’s training session on Tuesday. “It’s their opportunity to make a better situation for their career. We’re well prepared, we know how to go into the game and it’s just a matter of stepping onto the field and executing the plan.
“Of course, anytime you have an opportunity to lead a group of men then it’s a good thing, but this is Bruce’s team and I've been asked to get these guys prepared and do whatever we can to get the result.”
