Galaxy signs Panama keeper

MOST COMMENTED

[MLS TRANSACTIONS] The LA Galaxy signed 31-year-old Panamanian goalkeeper Jaime Penedo on a free transfer, perhaps signaling the end of the short tenure of Italian Carlo Cudicini in goal. Penedo could make his first start in Wednesday's third-place game at the Guinness International Champions Cup.

Penedo spent the last six seasons playing in Guatemala with Municipal, helping it win two Clausura titles (2008 and 2010) and two Apertura titles (2009 and 2011), and most recently helped Panama to the 2013 Gold Cup final.
 
Penedo has made 89 appearances with the Canaleros. He also helped Panama reach the 2005 Gold Cup final, where it fell on penalties to the United States.

Cudicini, who turns 40 in September, signed from Tottenham, where he was a backup, in December. The Italian made a number of errors that only added to the problems the Galaxy, the two-time defending MLS champion, was having closing out games this season.

Cudicini has been nursing from a minor back injury, so Brian Rowe, who began the year as the No. 3 keeper, started the first time games in the Guinness International Champions Cup.

Penedo could get his first action in the third-place game Wednesday against AC Milan in Miami.

The Galaxy will return to MLS action on Sunday when it takes on FC Dallas.

    Thank goodness the Galaxy made a move on goal. Cudicini was a disaster in net. Landon Donovan talking to clubs in Europe for next season is not good news for Galaxy fans.
