LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles Galaxy have signed Colombian striker Juan Pablo
Angel to team up with Landon Donovan and David Beckham, the MLS club said on Wednesday.
Angel, who played in England's Premier League with Aston Villa, spent the past four seasons
with the New York Red Bulls, scoring an impressive 58 goals in 102 regular season games.
Angel joins Beckham and Donovan under the 'designated
player rule' which allows clubs to pay selected players largely
outside of the salary cap limit.
"I believe that he will play a major role in our success this season," Galaxy general
manager and head coach Bruce Arena said.
"He has been one of the best goalscorers in MLS over the
last four years and I fully expect that he will be a productive
and consistent player in a Galaxy uniform."
Angel, 35, represented the Colombia national team on 33 occasions scoring nine goals.
