Will keep the Galaxy and Chivas USA very busy. Read the column here.
As if to confirm that, Chivas USA announced this afternoon that last season’s MVP, goalkeeper Dan Kennedy, has signed a new contract with the club. For my money Kennedy is easily one of the best goalkeepers in the league.
“His consistency and leadership both on and off the field were exemplary last season, and now moving towards the club’s objectives for 2012 of building a championship caliber team, securing Kennedy to a new contract was one of our priorities this offseason,” said Jose Domene, Chivas USA General Manager.
Kennedy managed seven shutouts last season for Chivas USA, a remarkable achievement given the defense he was playing behind.
BTW: Chivas USA learned its opponent in its home opener today; it will be the Houston Dynamo in a game shown nationally on Galavision at 1 p.m. Sunday, March 11 from Carson.
Also, the Galaxy played its final game of the season in the wee hours of this morning.
