With Ola Kamara out the door, can the LA Galaxy find a way to thrive without him? Get behind the curtain to find out how it all started.
COG STUDIOS, Calif. – The LA Galaxy find themselves scrambling a bit as Ola Kamara is in China trying to finalize a deal that would see the forward move away from Los Angeles. It was a rumor that rapidly got feet and has now taken over the entire Galaxy narrative just days before the season opener.
Your hosts, Josh Guesman, and Kevin Baxter dive deep into what is happening around the club and when they knew that Kamara may want out of LA. Also, they’ll drop in behind the scenes to understand the motivation for the move.
And it a complex set of things to understand. Could the Galaxy get better because of Kamara’s wish to leave? And what could the Galaxy actually get in terms of money for a striker of Kamara’s talents?
We’ll let you know what the Galaxy had to say in their statement that was released today, and we’ll tell you what Guillermo Barros Schelotto had to say about Kamara and what the money might mean to the team.
Additionally, we’ll discuss where Giovani dos Santos fits into all of this and why assumptions about his future might be all wrong. Is Giovani dos Santos playing hardball with the club? Will he sit out if he doesn’t get his way? And could the Galaxy be back to buying out his contract with just days left before the start of the season?
It’s a packed show that will answer all your questions surrounding the Kamara trade. And it very well could mean multiple players hitting the roster before the transfer window closes for the Galaxy.
Kevin will even throw in some special surprises at the beginning and end of the podcast.
So, join us for 70 minutes of Galaxy-talk as we get you ready for a very busy week.
