"Center backs like him are not easy to come by," LAFC general manager John Thorrington said. "Those are two guys that have a great potential of working together. It's not an easy position to fill with two top targets. When you look at the pair, I think they just complement each other really well."
"Bob Bradley is a clear statement of our intent to be a club that wins things," Thorrington said. "Everybody in this game, everybody in MLS, knows what he has accomplished, and we've got big things to accomplish together."
