LA Galaxy coach Bruce Arena has hailed the capture of Ghanaian young striker Ema Boateng.
Boateng,20, has joined the Major League Soccer side on a three-year deal from Swedish outfit Helsinborg.
The former Right to Dream Academy product is expected to bolster Galaxy ahead of the new season.
And manager Bruce Arena has touted the qualities of the Ghanaian.
“He is an attacking player and gives us something I think we don’t have. With his speed I think is he is going to help us,” he said.
“He is not a full time player or part time player. I think his speed is going to be an important part for our attack.”
Born in Accra, Ghana, Boateng joined an African soccer developmental program, the Right to Dream Academy, and went on to earn a scholarship at the age of 15 to Cate.
During his prep career, the Rams went 42-2-1 and won two CIF titles. He scored 32 goals and had 19 seasons in his final season.
He played with the Ventura County Fusion in the Premier Development League during the summer of 2013 and signed with Helsingborgs of Sweden’s top division. He made 37 appearances with the club and scored four goals
