Los Angeles Galaxy boss: We’ll be better in 2009

It seems like things are slowly improving at the Home Depot Center after Arena took over for Ruud Gullit.

“I certainly understood coming in this would be a challenge,” Arena told the San Diego Union Tribune. “And it’s every bit a challenge as I anticipated… there is a lot of work to do.”

“Given some of our issues with the salary cap and everything else, it certainly won’t change overnight, but I can promise you this team will be a better team next year.”
