LA Galaxy fans couldn’t have been happier about the arrival of Mexican star Giovani Dos Santos. Apparently, the feeling is mutual.
On the same day that he received a warm welcome from Galaxy fans when he arrived at LAX, Do Santos returned the favor by taking out an ad in the LA Times to deliver a letter to fans. In the message, Dos Santos offered his thanks for support of the Mexican national team and expressed his desire to lead LA to success in the future.
Here is the full text of the letter:
I am overjoyed to tell you that I will be coming to Los Angeles to play for the LA Galaxy.
As you know, soccer is a journey. My journey has taken me to incredible places around the world and now the journey has brought me to you and the city of Los Angeles.
You have supported me when I donned the colors of Barcelona, Tottenham, Villarreal and Mexico. You have cheered me on in a number of memorable matches that I have played in this great city.
And now, I am excited to play for you as an LA Galaxy player. I look forward to your support when I put on the LA Galaxy jersey for the first time and make my MLS debut at StubHub Center this August.
I am excited about what the future holds for us in LA. See you soon.
