Podcast: Problems with Pavon, Araujo moving, and shaking – not stirring – some Galaxy announcements
The LA Galaxy need to navigate a difficult situation when it comes to retaining Cristian Pavon, and Julian Araujo is holding the interest of big names across the world.
COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy and their pursuit of Cristian Pavon just hit a significant roadblock. And it’s time for the club to hit pause on trying to bring back the best player from the 2020 season.
On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss Pavon’s future with the club and why it might be a considerable gamble to bring back the team MVP.
The guys start with sexual assault allegations that rocked the camp of Pavon over the weekend as the Argentine star was accused by a young woman of sexually assaulting her in the offseason of 2019 in Argentina. Josh and Kevin discuss the difficult situation the club is in now and why the Galaxy can’t afford to get this one wrong. Their reputation rides on so much with how they handle this.
And is Julian Araujo ready to head overseas? Not so fast, my friends! But don’t expect him to be around forever. The heat is ratcheting up around one of the Galaxy’s top prospects, and we’ll tell you what is happening behind the scenes.
Plus, get your tuxedo out. The Galaxy are bringing Jonathan Bond to Los Angeles. We’ll talk about the West Brom goalkeeper, and why he’s more than just a secret agent — in fact, we know relatively little about his play!
And couple there be more than just a single announcement this week? You bet!
Finally, the guys tell you why there might not be any hurry to kick this season off and why the end-of-January start date for camp seems like a pipe dream at this point. Could the MLS season be delayed significantly?
We’ve got a packed show today that gets you up and running on the Galaxy’s offseason acquisitions. The roster-building continues, and Greg Vanney has a lot of work to do!
