Chicharito Hernández has a new partner in Los Angeles GalaxyThe Galaxy incorporates to be champion
After an unbeatable start in Major League Soccer (MLS) 2021, with a stellar level from Javier Hernández, who scored five goals in two games (two against Inter Miami and three against New York Red Bulls), the Los Angeles Galaxy continue to think about improve the squad and that's why they closed another reinforcement.
This is Séga Coulibaly, a 29-year-old French defender who arrives from AS Nancy in Ligue 2 in France. The footballer signed a two-year contract with an option to extend it one more year and will be added to the club's roster pending receipt of his P-1 Visa and International Transfer Certificate (ITC).
"Séga is a talented and versatile defender with good experience and we believe that he can continue to grow as a player with our club", said LA Galaxy general manager Dennis te Kloese. He then added: “We are confident in his ability to contribute to our defense as we add another player who will compete along our baseline. We look forward to Séga joining the club and his contributions to the LA Galaxy”.
Coulibaly, Chicharito's brand new partner, was trained in French Rennes and has had periods on loan at Sedan and Avranches. In his career he has more than 100 appearances in both Ligue 2, the French Cup and the League Cup, in addition to also having participations in the France team in lower categories.
Coulibaly is the club's latest addition to the French system this year, following the key acquisitions of wingers Samuel Grandsir (AS Monaco) and Kevin Cabral (Valenciennes FC). Coulibaly also bolsters the team's new defensive core, joining defenders Derrick Williams, Jorge Villafana and Oniel Fisher, as well as goalkeeper Jonathan Bond.
