Tim Cahill

The versatile Australian footballer spent almost his entire career before the American stage in England at Millwall and Everton. He gave seven years to the team from Liverpool, and was its leader for many years. He was remembered for the fact that he equally successfully played in the positions of a midfielder and a striker. The maximum success in the Toffee shirt is considered to be the FA Cup final two years before his departure.

Having moved to New York to Thierry Henry, he immediately became the main player, and soon helped the new training team to the final third place in the regular season. However, this was not enough for the leadership. The decision to change the head coach looked quite logical, besides, Tim, with the new mentor Mike Petke, became a key figure in the center of the field. This year was perhaps the best during his time in the MLS: 1st place in the conference at the end of the season, and due to the greater number of points, the Red Bulls were awarded the Supporters’ Shield trophy.

Robbie Keane

Another footballer who made his way from Tottenham across the ocean. In London, Keane, like his former partner Jermain Defoe, developed as a professional player. The Irish striker has shown excellent performance only in the Spurs; perhaps Wolverhampton should also be included here, but with some reservations.

Robbie Keane decided to move to Los Angeles at an early age for this business. At the age of 31, many players were rediscovered, and he decided to try his hand at a new field. It makes no sense to say that the Irishman, who is in the prime of his life, came to finish the game – the statistics explain him better. The striker moved to Galaxy in the middle of the season, and head coach Bruce Arena rightly wanted to build a game around him. Within a few months, the Californians succeeded in what the fans had been waiting for for six years – a victory in the MLS Cup.

Thierry Henry

Probably, when the French striker moved to New York, many believed that the best years were already behind. But he not only shamed the skeptics, but also proved that it is possible to earn credibility in a completely different country in a fairly short period of time. If you look at the number of matches in the Red Bulls, you can understand that not many visiting stars manage to even get close to Tita’s indicators. The team achieved the maximum result in the past year, when the New England Revolution was stopped at the Eastern Conference finals.

David Beckham

From the first days, David’s popularity in Los Angeles and in soccer in general knew no bounds. Many specially bought season tickets just to watch the game of the famous Englishman. In his first season, a new rule was adopted in the organization, named after Beckham, or simply the “designated player rule”. The directive allows MLS clubs to sign star players regardless of the salary cap.

But it would be wrong to believe that the future PSG footballer gave the team nothing but crazy popularity. The Englishman still spoiled the local public with great free kicks and effective corner deliveries. In addition, David with his new team won the MLS Cup twice in a row, thus interrupting a six-year drought. In general, Beckham’s move to the United States was justified from all sides. Soccer’s prominence grew and Galaxy continued to dominate.

Jermain Defoe

Jermain moved to Canada not to finish the game, but to get a lot of playing time. He has repeatedly said that he plans to prove to England head coach Roy Hodgson that he is full of energy to help his country at the international forum. Why Toronto? The fact is that the past off-season was marked by a new Canadian project. Tim Leiweke became the new head of the club – the man who brought not just anyone to local football, but David Beckham. Italian Michael Bradley – it was on them that the game of Ryan Nelsen’s team was to be built. The current season ended about two months ago, and the conclusions for TFC are disappointing: the project failed miserably, and another absence from the playoffs became the peak of failure.
