MLS Weekly Roundup for February 17th

Three significant new stories were released to MLS supporters this week. The 1st is related to the LA Galaxy, who announced that they’re considering to contract out Lionel Messi. Born in Argentina, Lionel Messi includes the option to leave Barcelona yearly with the end of each season. The latest contract for this professional athlete expires following June 2021, leaving countless outfits in the Premier League and Major League Soccer, negotiating for Messi’s updated contract.

The announcement that Lionel Messi could join the Los Angeles Galaxy Football Club came from Radio Continental. Guillermo Barros Schelotto, the Argentina Head Coach for LA Galaxy, confirmed to this radio channel that they’re interested in this potential contract. It’d follow after Zlatan Ibrahimovic didn’t adhere to his contract with LA Galaxy, who abruptly left to enter an illegal agreement with AC Milan.

Differences in leagues forced this otherwise illegal action to go unnoticed for punishment. Guillermo wants to avoid this going forward with any other potential famous athletes, with Lionel Messi infamous for his loyalty to new outfits. It should be noted that neither Guillermo Barros Schelotto nor Lionel Messi has begun discussing if he’ll move State-Side following the 2021 MLS Season.

Javier Hernandez Starts Preseason with LA Galaxy

Another announcement regarding the Los Angeles Galaxy Football Club was made this week as well. Representatives with the team confirmed that Javier Hernandez had made his debut preseason appearance on Saturday, February 15th. LA Galaxy competed against the Toronto FC, who dominated over Los Angeles by 2-1 at the Dignity Health Sports Park.

Javier Hernandez was considered one of the best components for the LA Galaxy’s side, with him being the single-player to acquire a goal. When it applies to the Toronto Football Club, two points were achieved through Alejandro Pozuelo and Infunayachi Achara. These points were obtained through the false strategic behaviours implemented by Guillermo Barros Schelotto. The LA Galaxy Football Club competed next week on the 22nd against Chicago Fire FC.

LA Galaxy will have to formulate new strategies to compete for the MLS Championship. Both the Seattle Sounders FC and Toronto FC are looking to be the best teams in 2020. It’d follow a similar pattern from last season, which works against LA Galaxy, who used to be considered the team outfit in MLS with David Beckham. They’d hope similar popularity with Zlatan, who let down team owners and managers by leaving without any warning.
