CARSON, Calif. – With the unveiling of the new LA Galaxy kits on Monday, several players will be donning new jersey numbers.
Midfielder Gyasi Zardes will be wearing the No. 11 in 2014 after wearing No. 29 a year ago while goalkeeper Brian Perk will wear No. 1 after wearing No. 24 last season.
As for the new additions Rob Friend will be wearing No. 16, Baggio Hušidić is donning No. 6, Stefan Ishizaki will wear No. 24, Bradford Jamieson IV will don the No. 38, Raul Mendiola will wear No. 40, while new Brazilian forward Samuel will wear the No. 9 kit. Of the potential new signings defender James Riley has worn the No. 26 this preseason while Dan Gargan has donned the No. 33 which was formerly worn by Jose Villarreal.
Zardes is excited for the move to a lower number and hopes that the switch leads to more confidence on the field in his second year with the club.
“I’m just trying to be more confident," said Zardes. "I've got one year under my belt to build upon so I know how it is to go through a season as a professional. I’m just trying to use my experiences to my advantage."
