“He didn’t play much the last season or two, he was looking for a place where he could be happy, he could be himself and we could help him be the best he can be. He was looking for that because he sure had more options to continue in Europe, return to England or Wales, but he decides Los Angeles because he wants to be happy. It is the right place if you want to be happy and be able to score goals and hopefully win a championship, ”he revealed for the MLS portal.
