The former LA Galaxy chief is convinced City's partnership with the New York Yankees is a surefire winner.
â€śThe association with the Yankees takes it to another level because of what their name and brand entails,â€ť Lalas, the man responsible for bringing David Beckham to the LA Galaxy in 2007, told the Sunday Express. â€śItâ€™s wonderful news for Major League Soccer.
â€śI think itâ€™s going to be successful for the team and all in all itâ€™s a positive move with a few caveats.
â€śThere has not been a New York city team (the New York Red Bulls play their matches in New Jersey) before, though, so having an expansion franchise here is huge for the league.â€ť
