PODCAST: SACHA KLJESTAN — An In-Depth Interview with the LA Galaxy Midfielder

We sat down for a 45-minute interview with midfielder Sacha Kljestan. He talks about the LA Galaxy and what it took for him to have a long career in professional soccer.

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — He’s been around Major League Soccer since 2006. He’s a former United States Men’s National Team player, has played in Belgium, and is confident this LA Galaxy is a good team — that still needs to get a lot better. 

On Friday, June 17, 2022, Josh Guesman packed up the podcast studio and drove up to Dignity Health Sports Park for a 45-minute interview with Galaxy Midfielder Sacha Kljestan. 

Together, Josh and Sacha will talk about Sacha’s rise to a professional soccer player, the differences in mentality between US and European soccer players, and why he took a massive pay cut to stay in Los Angeles and with the Galaxy. 

And just in case you’re expecting someone like Sacha to tell you that giving back that much money was easy, he’ll let you know why it wasn’t. 

Enjoy over 45 minutes of soccer talk covering all things LA Galaxy and Sacha Kljestan. Including why he’s so comfortable being a spokesperson for any social cause he believes in and why he does it for his kids. 

And CoG would like to send out a big thank you to Sacha and the LA Galaxy (Vicky Mercado) for setting up and getting us this one-on-one interview.
