LA Galaxy new boy Giovani dos Santos is looking forward to playing alongside “superstars” Robbie Keane and Steven Gerrard in MLS.
The Mexico international, who has been signed as a Designated Player, was mobbed at the airport by Galaxy fans when he arrived in Los Angeles on Sunday.
“Well they are superstars. I think it is a pleasure to play with them,” he said of new team-mates Keane and Gerrard.
“I know Keano [Robbie Keane] from Tottenham, he is a great player, he is a great striker. He has all the skills, he is a quality player with experience. To play with him is always a pleasure.
“With Steven, for me, it is a pleasure to play with Stevie, I think he’s one of the best players in the history of football and I hope I can learn a lot of things from him and I can’t wait to meet him.”
Dos Santos took the decision to leave Villarreal to further his career in the United States, signing a long-term deal with the Galaxy.
“I want to be a very important part of the team, I want to win a lot of titles with LA Galaxy and work every day as a player, you always want to grow and get better and I think it is the right moment to come here and achieve those goals,” he said of the move.
“I think the league is getting better – it’s getting stronger, a lot of good players came here.
“Steven Gerrard, Kaka, Andrea Pirlo, Robbie Keane, Sebastian Giovinco … and as a player you always want to play with the best players and for me I think I made the right decision to come here to the MLS with a really important team, I think the best team in the MLS and I really want to win titles and I’m very happy with my decision.”
