Executive Vice President of Los Angeles FC, John Thorrington returned to the signature of Bouanga during an interview with MLS Soccer.  » The transfer took place on August 4, a few minutes from the closing of our summer transfer window. I was afraid it wouldn’t happen. The challenge we faced was that the transfer window periods are not the same in the United States and in Europe. If we put ourselves in the place of the selling club, it could be in their interest to wait until the end of their summer transfer window. Until I see the signature, I’m still worried. Especially in this case because we knew that the player had a very sought after profile  » did he declare.
