- Paul Bravo, Stefani Miglioranz, Trades
A small trade really but one to talk about…the Los Angeles Galaxy acquired midfielder Stefani Miglioranzi from the Columbus Crew for a conditional fourth-round pick in the 2010 MLS SuperDraft.
The 31-year old midfielder from Brazil began his MLS career with the Galaxy in 2006, appearing in three games before being traded to Columbus after the season.
The bigger news however is about Paul Bravo
The Galaxy also announced Friday that Bravo, the team’s director of soccer, has left to become technical director for the Colorado Rapids.
Bravo played for the Rapids from 1997-2001 before joining their coaching staff in 2002. He joined the Galaxy in June 2006 as an assistant to then-coach Frank Yallop, and held that position for a little over a year before becoming director of soccer.
A very good move for both sides really. Bravo probably had little power left in LA with Bruce Arena in charge and now with Colorado he should be able to run the show there a little more with Gary Smith.
