MONTERREY, Mexico -- Omar Gonzalez's visit to Monterrey is headline news in Mexico ahead of Wednesday's CONCACAF Champions League Semifinal second leg, but in this feature for LAGalaxy.com, I speak to Gonzalez and his uncle former Monterrey captain Everardo “Lalo” Rodriguez Plata about the Galaxy's defender's past in Monterrey

As for how Gonzalez is reacting to the increased attention in Monterrey, the LA Galaxy defender spoke about it to the media on Tuesday. 

" I think it’s great that everyone found out that I’m from this city and that I have a lot of ties to this city and this is a great city even though it’s a little dangerous right now and I always still love coming back to visit," said Gonzalez.
