Emilson Tejas Torres, a 8th grade student at AJCMS, will go for LAFC instead of LA Galaxy. His favorite player is Carlos Vela because he is Mexican and good at soccer. He said,” Carlos Vela is a beast.” He likes LA Galaxy but he feels like LAFC will be better.

Javier Alvarado, a teacher at Animo Jefferson Charter Middle School, was nice enough to answer some questions:


Anthony: “How do you think LAFC season is going?”

Alvarado: “ It’s going good for a random new team in the league.” 


Anthony:  “How are the Galaxy going to do?”

Alvarado:  The “Galaxy are not doing great but they are not the bad either I say they are an average team”


Anthony: “ Which team do you like more and why?”

Alvarado:  “Galaxy been here in Los Angeles for a long time but LAFC has one of my favorite players in Carlos Vela. I know that he a big player in the MLS but he not a Messi or a Ronaldo in the world.  I am going to go for LAFC just because they got one of my favorite players in Carlos Vela, but that does not mean that I don’t support LA Galaxy I will keep supporting both LA Soccers teams. I also pick LAFC because they are more closer than LA Galaxy.”


Anthony:  “Does LAFC and LA Galaxy have a chance in winning a championship ” 

Alvarado:  “They both have a chance because they both have two players that are really good.  For LAFC they have Diegio Rossi and Carlos Vela and LA Galaxy have Giovani dos Santos and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. So both teams really do have a good chance and I think you need that for a league like the MLS.  You need to have a good player and a backup player.”
