Bad news for Toronto FC fans

Good news for the LA Galaxy and CONCACAF Champions League neutrals (ha ha, kidding, the latter don’t exist). From the LA Galaxy website:

The LA Galaxy announced today that the club has reached an agreement with Brazilian club Sao Paulo that will allow midfielder Juninho to return to the Galaxy on loan for the 2012 MLS season. Additionally, the Galaxy have completed the signing of former Sao Paulo defender Leonardo, who joins the club permanently on a free transfer. Juninho and Leonardo each played for the Galaxy during the 2010 and 2011 seasons, helping the club repeat as Supporters’ Shield winners and win their third MLS Cup last season. Per club and league policy, terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

As Ives Tweetered:

  1. Surely Ives is joking saying LA Galaxy are Champions League favorites?

    Against Toronto yes, but not to win the tournament. The Mexican sides are still far ahead of MLS, including the Galaxy.

    Personally, I like TFC’s chances, even with Galaxy keeping these players.

  2. I like the Wu reference

  3. Is this Middlesbrough Juninho or Lyon Juninho?

  4. Richard, there is a rumour going around that this is a “free” loan so the Galaxy won’t have to pay Juninho one red cent.

    Can you confirm this story? If so, one truly has to wonder about the legitimacy of the transaction not to mention the integrity of the MLS when it comes to matters of this sort … if in fact it is a “free” loan.
