I joined LA Galaxy to make history – Winger Joseph Paintsil

Ghana winger, Joseph Paintsil says he joined Major League Soccer side, LA Galaxy to make history.

The 26 year old joined the side on a long term deal from Belgian side, KRC Genk in a deal worth €8 million.

Since joining the side, Paintsil has featured seven times for LA Galaxy with two goals to his credit.

However, speaking in an interview, the promising attacker said he is hoping to follow the footsteps of David Beckham and Zlatan Ibrahimovic to make history at the club.

“I’m not just coming just to enjoy the life of LA or California,” Paintsil told The Athletic.

“No, I came to also make a mark and also write my name in the book of the legacy, to have a trophy, to win a league. That’s the most important thing, to leave something so that when I also leave, like David Beckham, Ibrahimovic and the rest left behind, I can also be remembered like that,” he added.

Joseph Paintsil will return to action when they travel to play Vancouver at the BC Place on Sunday.
