The Republic of Ireland international, who joined the Galaxy from Tottenham Hotspur last week, scored on his MLS debut as the Galaxy defeated San Jose Earthquakes 2-0 at The Home Depot Center on the weekend and his performance was not lost on his new teammates.
“He’s a different class,” Magee said. “We all knew that anyway, but to see it live, without any training, just getting off a flight is amazing. It’s going to be amazing saying one day I played with this guy.”
“When he gets settled a little more, when he’s not less than 48 hours from getting off a flight, you’ll probably see a little more energy,” Donovan said. “But I thought he was in great spots; he did well with the ball.
“It was clear [Friday] what type of player he is and how he moves. Like I said when David (Beckham) got here, good soccer players are easy to play with. He’s a very good soccer player. For all the goal scoring he does, his passing is good and the way he uses the ball is very good also.”
