LA Galaxy is moving forward

LA Galaxy sign their second forward in less than a week. Last week LA Galaxy signed brazilian striker Samuel on loan, and on the 13th of January they have announced the acquisition of Canadian striker Rob Friend. Friend is a former Canadian international player who currently played for German club TSV 1860 Munich. He has an 11-year professional career and hopefully will be just what the Galaxy needs in case Landon Donovan goes to Brazil for the World Cup this summer.

Friend is 6'5, which may be just what Galaxy needs physically in the box. His height is not his only qualifying feature, because Friend has scored 75 goals in his veteran career. An impressive feat and one he hopes to continue while playing for Galaxy. Any club is always looking for more goal scorers, and if LA hopes to make it to the Cup this year they'll need more attacking forwards like Friend.

Friend almost started out in MLS,when he was chosen by the Chicago Fire in the 2003 SuperDraft. He instead elected to play in Europe, and it was not a mistake as his career shows just how much success he's achieved. Now as he returns to the MLS--pending the receipt of his International Transfer Certificate (ITC)--he will continue his amazing career and hopefully give the LA Galaxy what they need.
