VIDEO: Dos Santos explains MLS move to “a really important team”


Giovani Dos Santos has a bunch of reasons for signing with the Los Angeles Galaxy.

First, he’s wanted to play closer to home for a long time, to be nearer to his family in Mexico and the fans of his national team.

Secondly, L.A. has won a lot of titles and looks like a title favorite now that he’s joined Steven Gerrard, Robbie Keane and Gyasi Zardes in attack.

It’s also easy to forget that his new strike partner (of sorts) has filled that role in the past.

From Galaxy TV:

“I made the right decision to come to MLS with a really important team. I know Keano from Tottenham. He’s a great player, a great striker. He has the skills and is a quality player with experience. To play with him always is a pleasure, and it’s a pleasure to play with Stevie, one of the best players in the history of football. I hope I can learn a great deal from him.”
