Ashley Cole doing well with LA Galaxy
The former Arsenal and Chelsea left-back has impressed pundits with his performance in the Major League Soccer. Ever since coming to the States, he has been putting in some wonderful performance and has demonstrated why he was considered at some point in his career as the best left back in the world.
He made his debut in the MLS in March 2016 in a match against DC United which LA Galaxy won by 4-1. There were also other former Premier League stars such as Robbie Keane and Steven Gerrard playing in the match.
Ashley Cole, who was playing for AS Roma in Italy before moving to the MLS, did not find it difficult to adapt to the pace of the MLS. Indeed, his performance was so good that he was named in the team of the week.
The LA Galaxy coach, Bruce Arena was keen to underline the importance of Ashley Cole to the team. He said that Cole brings some experiences at the back and will have a calming effect on the other players especially when they are under pressure.
LA Galaxy really needed the experience of all his star players to come back in the game as they were trailing 1-0. Arena said that he was pleased with the discipline, determination and composure showed by his team and that they will need to show this character every week if they want to be successful in the MLS.
