[LA GALAXY]The LA Galaxy appointed Peter Vagenas, captain of the Galaxy’s 2005 MLS Cup winning team, as the director of its academy.

Vagenas will be responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operation of the Academy, including implementing the coaching and training curriculums. He will also be in charge of continuing to develop players for the first team, supporting the club’s relationships within the Southern California soccer community and cultivating the growth of feeder clubs LA Galaxy SB and LA Galaxy OC.

Vagenas will report to Galaxy Technical Director Jovan Kirovski, another ex-Galaxy player.
 
“We’re excited to bring Pete back home to the LA Galaxy,” said LA Galaxy President Chris Klein. “He is an important part of the history of our club and he will play an integral role in developing the Galaxy players of the future.”
 
Vagenas, a UCLA product, played for the Galaxy in nine of his 13 seasons in MLS. He also played for the Seattle Sounders, Vancouver Whitecaps and and Chivas USA.
