After being initially selected in the Re-Entry Draft last month, Servando Carrasco is now officially and LA Galaxy player. 

The defensive midfielder leaves Orlando City to enter his 10th season in the league with his fifth team (Seattle Sounders, Houston Dynamo, Sporting KC, and Orlando City). Overall he’s made more than 125 appearances and has racked up over 7,200 minutes with two goals and five assists.

Husband of US Women's star Alex Morgan, Carrasco has spent the last 3 years in Florida with the Lions following his move from Seattle where his new coach Sigi Schmid was in charge at CenturyLink Field.

Servando has extensive MLS experience and brings depth to our squad,” said Schmid in a press release. “We’re excited to welcome Servando to the Galaxy.”

Following the addition of former D.C United midfielder Perry Kitchen to the Galaxy roster, it's expected Carrasco will act as back up, bringing experience and depth that the squad lacked last season.
