News| LAFC have released 4 players on trial with the club this week. These players are: Connor O’Brien, Baggio Husidic, Ricky Lopez-Espin, and Kevin Mendoza. All these players are talented but just don’t fit in with the LAFC roster as of right now. We are already loaded with midfielders and strikers so it would not make sense to keep them around. Kevin Mendoza made a very big impact for LAFC in the preseason game vs Vissel Kobe, there is no doubt that he has some bright years to look forward to in his career. I just want to say thank you to these players who made the best contribution to the club with the time they were given here. Best of luck in the future boys! As it stands, Javi Pérez, Phillip Ejimadu, Lamar Batista, Peter-Lee Vassell, Alejandro Guido, and Wade Hamilton are all still on trial with the club and are fighting for a spot on the roster. What do you guys think about these departures?!
