MOST COMMENTED

[MLS] Rather than take a stab at Stage 2 of the new Re-Entry Draft when the Galaxy declined to exercise his option for the 2011 season, veteran attacker Jovan Kirovski elected to opt out of the process when he wasn’t selected in Stage 1 and negotiate with his current team, the Galaxy.

The team announced Thursday that Kirovski, 34, had signed a one-year contract to play a fifth season for the Galaxy. Terms were not disclosed. He scored four goals and registered two assists last year in 21 games (11 starts). He also picked up six yellow cards and was ejected twice.

Kirovski played in Los Angeles in the 2004 and 2005 seasons, then played for Colorado and San Jose before coming back to the Galaxy two years ago.

In the Re-Entry Draft and subsequent trades, the Galaxy acquired rights to Juan Pablo Angel (age 35) and Frankie Hedjuk (36). Along with Kirovski, their combined ages exceed 100 yet Kirovski is enthusiastic about they can bring to a team that won the Supporters’ Shield last season but stumbled in the conference final at home to FC Dallas, 3-0.

“Those are two fantastic players,” Kirovski said. “If we can sign them, they’ll be very good to our squad. With Angel, the quality speaks for itself. The goals he’s scored, that’s something we lacked and it’s important for our team. Frankie’s a veteran player. I’ve known him a long time and he’ll fit in perfectly.”
