Sarvas to remain patient despite LA Galaxy goalscoring display

Marcelo Sarvas knows he has to remain patient and work hard for LA Galaxy game time despite scoring in his last outing.

The off-season signing from Costa Rican club Alajuelense came off the bench to add a third goal in the 3-1 home win over DC United a week-and-a-half ago but is well aware that it will be difficult to break into a central midfield which contains David Beckham and fellow Brazilian Juninho.

"It's the same team that played last year," Sarvas told of the MLS Cup-winning Galaxy.

"They are doing good and I'm here to add something. Of course I want to play also like everyone here. We have 30 players and 30 players want to play so I have to train hard, do my best and wait for my opportunity to come.

"Always when you score a goal it's important, you feel good," he added. "To me particularly it's important because I'm coming here, I have to show to win my spot on the team, in the group.

"When you do these things the right way, when you train hard, when you work hard, good things come to you. This is just something that I'm doing during the week and then it's coming in the games."
