- 2009 Allocation List, Gregg Berhalter
Bruce Arena really is putting the old band back together out in LA. His latest addition is defender Gregg Berhalter. The club and league announced the signing today.
“Gregg is an experienced and knowledgeable defender who will be an excellent addition to our club,” Arena said. “He is a good passer and organizer of the defense and I believe that he will help improve our team in the defensive end of the field.”
The Galaxy used their top allocation spot to sign Berhalter. The 35-year-old defender will probably get slotted into a defense that is both young and old.
If healthy this could be a good signing for LA. Even at his age I think bringing a veteran defender on board never hurts at any time of the year, especially this early in the year. Some will probably hate on this signing but I have to admit it is nice to see him in the league and I really think it could pay off for the Galaxy. Yeah, call me crazy.
