When the Los Angeles Galaxy traded away Mike Magee they knew they would need players to pick up the scoring slack left by Magee’s departure and one of the players expected to pick up that slack is rookie Gyasi Zardes.
The Galaxy Homegrown Player showed on Sunday just what sort of quality he can provide, scoring his second goal of the season, and the only goal of the night in a 1-0 Galaxy victory vs. Chivas USA. The strike, and his overall solid performance, helped earn Zardes SBI MLS Rookie of the Week honors.
Zardes beat out FC Dallas defender Walker Zimmerman for this week’s honors.
What did you think of Zardes’ showing vs. Chivas USA? What rookie impressed you the most in MLS Week 17?
