On a new club and with a new family, we catch up with Memo Rodriguez to see the differences between Houston and LA, how he’s gotten on with the Galaxy, and what he and his teammates get up to off the pitch.
It’s one thing to know you’ll be changing teams after spending over a decade in the organization. It’s another to explore an offer from that new club on the day of your wedding.
That’s what happened for Memo Rodriguez, who signed with the LA Galaxy last offseason after having been in the Houston Dynamo system since 2011. A homegrown signing with the Dynamo, Rodriguez was ready for change, and recently began the new chapter of his career with a historic club currently looking for a revamp of its own.
We sat down with the veteran midfielder to discuss how he’s gotten on with his new club, what he misses most from Texas, and how he spends his time with his teammates off the pitch (spoiler: it involves reality dating shows).
