For the first time in their four years in Major League Soccer, Los Angeles Football Club failed to qualify to the playoffs after losing 5-2 on the road against the Colorado Rapids. This was a failure of a season for the team managed by Bob Bradley because in two-years they went from being one of the best teams of the league, to one of the worst.

Bradley on his way out of LAFC

According to information gathered by AS USA, Bob Bradley will part ways with LAFC after four seasons and he will take the Toronto FC job next year. The American head coach did a great job with the Black & Golds in their first two years in MLS and won the 2019 Supporters’ Shield title, the first trophy in the history of the club.

Also injuries didn’t help Bradley to improve the team during the 2020 and 2021 MLS campaigns. His best player, Carlos Vela, missed a total of 20 games in two years and Diego Rossi left to Fenerbahçe in the middle of the current season during the summer transfer window.

On top of that, Eduard Atuesta, a key player in the midfield, missed the last six-games of the 2021 MLS season due to an injury and Eddie Segura had to undergo a knee surgery that prevented him from playing for most part of the year. So it is not Bradley’s fault, but the bosses in Los Angeles are ready to part ways with him and start fresh next year.
