(ANSA) – LOS ANGELES, JUN 13 – “Giorgio Chiellini is one of us, until the end of the 2023 season, and for our club it is a unique opportunity. There are few players in the world with his experience and his palmares “. The announcement comes from John Thorrington, co-president and general manager of Los Angeles FC, one of the two teams from the Californian metropolis that play in the North American MLS.
Los Angeles is currently at the top of the ‘regular season’ standings, with 29 points in 14 games and Chiellini could make his debut in his new team in the derby against ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez’s LA Galaxy on July 8th.
Last season Los Angeles failed to enter the playoffs for the first time, while this year they are clearly aiming for the title. Its shareholders include former NBA basketball star Earvin ‘Magic’ Johnson and actor Will Ferrell. According to Thorrington, Chiellini’s arrival at his club and Lorenzo Insigne’s in Toronto “demonstrate that MLS is becoming a league that increasingly attracts all types of footballers, from superstars to veterans and young talents.” (HANDLE).
