The Los Angeles Galaxy acquired three young players on loan from Brazilian club Sao Paulo for the 2010 MLS season. Alex
, a 21-year-old
left-sided player, Juninho
, a 20-year-old central midfielder and 6-foot-2 Leonardo
, a 21-year-old central defender
all spent two weeks training with the Galaxy in October.
They all played on the team that won the Super Group at the 2007 Dallas Cup.
This isn't the first time the Galaxy
has turned to Sao Paulo for reinforcements. Ex-Paulistas Marcelo Saragosa
and Paulo Nagamura
moved to the Galaxy in
2004 nd 2005, respectively.
Both are still in MLS with Galaxy neighbor Chivas USA.
