Also in the news is another former LA Galaxy II defender. Daniel Steres, who also spent time at the Wilmington Hammerheads of the USL, has now signed with the Galaxy first team and joins Dave Romney and Clement Diop as Galaxy II players that have signed MLS contracts. From the LA Galaxy website…
“Daniel has been an important part of LA Galaxy II’s success during the past two seasons,” said LA Galaxy Head Coach and General Manager Bruce Arena. “He has continued developing while earning meaningful and consistent minutes in USL. We look forward to his contributions to our team.”
Steres, 25, captained LA Galaxy II in 2015 and was a mainstay in the Los Dos defense for the second straight season, starting in 24 matches – the most of any Galaxy II defender – while adding two goals in regular season play. The Calabasas, California, product started in all four of Galaxy II’s USL Playoff matches, leading the team to the 2015 USL Championship. He earned the LA Galaxy II Defender of the Year award for the second-straight year. In 2015, Steres also made first-team appearances for the LA Galaxy during the International Champions Cup in matches against FC Barcelona and Club America.
