  • The Revolution continued their shakeup by ousting GM Michael Burns

Bruce Arena now holds the keys the to the New England Revolution's kingdom.

Arena arrives one day after the team parted ways with general manager Mike Burns and five days after the team fired head coach Brad Friedel.

Now in last place in the MLS Eastern Conference, the Revs had gone 12-21-13 since hiring Friedel as coach in November 2017.

One of Arena's first tasks will be to watch his new team take on the Premier League's third-placed side Chelsea.

They're hoping to change that with Arena.

He had two stints in charge of the U.S. Men's National Team, with both ending in disappointment and disaster. Though his second stint as the United States men's national team coach was considered by many as disastrous after the team failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation, his track record in the MLS speaks for itself.

Arena is the most successful coach in MLS history, building dynasties in D.C. and Los Angeles, and he has acted in dual roles across much of that career.

The New England Revolution are turning to one of the most decorated coaches in Major League Soccer to help revive a season and a franchise.

"Bruce is one of the most successful coaches in American soccer history, and we feel his commitment to excellence, track record of winning championships in Major League Soccer, as well as his success at the global level, makes him the best person to bring the Revolution back to MLS Cup contention", Revolution Investor/Operator Robert Kraft said.

The Revolution have never won an MLS Cup but have been to the finals five times.

The 67-year-old Arena, the eighth coach in club history, will be introduced at a news conference Thursday.

According to the team, he will assume all responsibilities as sporting director immediately Tuesday.

Arena also was USA's head coach between 1998 and 2006.

"It was evident when talking with Bruce that we share a vision for the future of the Revolution and we look forward to having him oversee our soccer organization", said Revolution president Brian Bilello.
