Sebastian Lletget full bio and stats

Sometimes young talents come into the league and are like a meteor: They shine brightly, then burn out and are forgotten.

Lletget seems more like a comet: Someone who'll be around for a long, long time and will work his way into the spotlight on a regular basis.

The Galaxy got him from West Ham for nothing, and he's provided them with a bit of everything: goals, assists, rugged defense and some real skill and creativity on the ball. He hasn't just been a complementary piece in that stacked LA lineup; he's been one of the stars.

What the technical staffers say: "I believe in the tried and true theory of history that if you put a kid around true professionals, they’ll improve. And he walked into that lineup surrounded by internationals, and at times he's been their best player. That says a lot about him."

"He’s a two-way player and a proud one. He’s willing to do the work and is proud to be a part of the defensive effort. That’s the quality that will make him more and more valuable and why you don't have to hesitate to put him in there."

What Opta Sports says: Sebastian Lletget leads all 24 Under 24-eligible midfielder in goals per 90 minutes (0.56 goals per 90).
