LOS ANGELES – Benny Feilhaber has been reunited with Bob Bradley.
The Los Angeles Football Club announced Wednesday that it acquired the veteran midfielder from Sporting Kansas City for $200,000 in General Allocation Money and $200,000 in Targeted Allocation Money.
Feilhaber played for Bradley when the latter coached the U.S. men’s national team.
“Benny and I shared some good days with the U.S. national team,” Bradley said in a statement. “I am excited to work with him again. He has an attacking quality and an excellent understanding of the game. We welcome Benny to LAFC.”
Feilhaber scored a spectacular game-winning goal in the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup final. He has also made appearances for the United States in the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup, 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cup and the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. Feilhaber saw action in three World Cup matches. He has played for the U.S. 44 times.
“Benny has enjoyed great success as an incredibly productive midfielder and has won multiple trophies here in MLS,” LAFC general manager John Thorrington said. “He has valuable experience and will provide stability and productivity to our midfield.”
Feilhaber, 32, is a seven-year MLS veteran who enjoyed five productive seasons in Kansas City from 2013-2017, winning the 2013 MLS Cup and the 2015 and 2017 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.
