Carlo Cudicini signs with LA Galaxy

On the Monday, the LA Galaxy announced that they have signed goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini on loan from the English Premier League's Tottenham Hotspur. The Galaxy are the two-time defending MLS champions.

In their first major off-season move since winning the MLS Cup, the Los Angeles Galaxy announced on Monday that they've signed Italian goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini. Cudicini comes to Los Angeles on loan from Tottenham Hotspur of the English Premier League.

Here is what Galaxy general manager and head coach Bruce Arena had to say about the signing, via a team press release:

"We are delighted to be able to add Carlo Cudicini to our roster. Carlo is an experienced and accomplished goalkeeper who we believe will be a great addition to our team and our defensive unit."

Cudicini began his professional career with AC Milan in 1992 and played for a number of lower-level clubs in Europe before eventually joining Chelsea in the English Premier League during the 1999-2000 season. He joined Tottenham in 2009, but with Brad Friedel and Hugo Lloris currently on their roster, the 39-year-old became expendable.

Cudicini will join a talented Galaxy team which won the MLS Cup just weeks ago, but is going through major overhaul on their roster this off-season. In specific, star midfielder David Beckham will not return to the club next year.

Ironically, Cudicini stared in goal for Tottenham when they played a friendly against the Galaxy this past July.
