With Mexico national team coach Juan Carlos Osorio in attendance at StubHub Center for the latest edition of the Cali Clasico, the focus turned to the LA Galaxy duo of Giovani dos Santos and brother Jonathan dos Santos in their final appearance before World Cup rosters are finalized.
And ahead of the tournament, Galaxy President Chris Klein made one thing clear in a quick media session at Friday's match: The club won't be listening to any offers for either player.

As described by Alejandro Berry on Univision's SAP (English) broadcast, Klein said, "They're happy with both of them, they will be [listening to] no offers for the Dos Santos brothers. What they're looking for is the two of them to continue with the team."
In a brief clip posted by Minelli Atayde of La Aficion, Klein firmly said of a potential transfer, "That's not something we talk about."
