The Call Up

The Call Up: Greg Vanney talks rebuilding LA Galaxy, Chicharito, his scarf and more

Listen to the latest episode:

The ladies live vicariously through new head coach of the LA Galaxy, Greg Vanney, who feels right at home in the SoCal sunshine. He discusses the decision to leave Toronto, how he will restore the “soul” of the Galaxy, and he DOESN’T rule out seeing Chicharito and Sebastian Giovinco on the field together. Plus, the “Sigi Schmid” influence on his coaching style. Speaking of style ... did the iconic scarf make the trip to the West Coast? Can you say “here for this” episode?? Because we SO are!
