5. MLS: Galaxy overhaul begins
June 28th, 2006 4:17PM



Monday's trade of defender Todd Dunivant to the New York Red Bulls is just the beginning of the Los Angeles Galaxy's overhaul under new coach Frank Yallop.

Besides Dunivant, who played every minute for the Galaxy at left back during its 2005 championship campaign, the Galaxy got rid of midfielder Marcelo Saragosa. The Brazilian started 24 games in 2004 and 10 in 2006. He returned to Brazilian club Sao Paulo in 2005 after his loan deal expired and rejoined the Galaxy late in the 2005 season after his contract was purchased from Sao Paulo.

The Galaxy, winless in its last 10 games, is expected to sign 30-year-old midfielder Ante Jazic, who played for Yallop on Canada's national team.

"[It] will be nice waking up in Los Angeles every day," Jazic told the Halifax Daily News. "There are definitely worse places to play."

Jazic, who likes to play on the left side, played professionally in Croatia, Austria and Russia. He became a free agent in February when Russian club FC Kuban bought out the last year of a three-year contract he signed in 2004.
