[MLS TRANSACTIONS] Looking to improve its goalkeeping position, the MLS champion Los Angeles Galaxy signed 39-year-old Italian Carlo Cudicini on a free transfer from Tottenham Hotspur.
Cudicini has spent the majority of his career as a backup keeper, first at Chelsea behind Petr Cech and more recently at Spurs behind Heurelho Gomes, Brad Friedel and now Hugo Lloris.
He moved to England in 2000 and was Chelsea's starting keeper until Cech's arrival in 2004.
“We are delighted to be able to add Carlo Cudicini to our roster,” Galaxy head coach and general manager Bruce Arena said in a statement. “Carlo is an experienced and accomplished goalkeeper who we believe will be a great addition to our team and our defensive unit.”
Last year's starting keeper, Josh Saunders, has not been re-signed for 2013. The Galaxy re-signed backup Brian Perk and addedWill Hesmer in the Re-Entry Draft.
