MOST COMMENTED

[MLS SPOTLIGHT] Former U.S. international Jovan Kirovski has been promoted to the position of technical director at the MLS champion Los Angeles Galaxy. Kirovski, who retired following the 2011 season and served as an assistant coach during the Galaxy's 2012 campaign, is the club's first technical director.

He will work under Galaxy general manager and head coach Bruce Arena, scouting and evaluating players locally and abroad in his new role for the club while also helping to establish relationships with clubs around the world.

The 36-year-old Kirovski, who will also work with the club's academy program, spent his first 12 years as a player in Europe. He came up through the Manchester United youth system and was only blocked from playing for the first team because of his inability to obtain a work permit. He was then a member of the Borussia Dortmund team that won the 1997 UEFA Champions League and Toyota Cup. He came on as a sub in Dortmund in the Toyota Cup win over Cruzeiro of Brazil.

“I am excited to begin this next chapter of my career and feel that with my history as both a player in MLS and abroad, as well as my time spent as a coach, I am perfectly suited for this role as the club’s first Technical Director,” Kirovski said in a statement. “I was born and raised in Southern California and I love being a part of this club and helping it continue to expand and grow as the premier club in Major League Soccer.”
