Guillermo Barros Schelotto opens up in his first interview with the LA Galaxy as to why he chose the club and his thoughts for the upcoming season.

At the end of each year, the El Pais newspaper in Uruguay organises a survey to crown the best player of the Americas. The 2018 winner, with a commanding 41 percent of the vote, was River Plate's attacking midfielder Gonzalo "Pity" Martinez -- a player South American fans will not be seeing for a while.
