LA Galaxy trade No. 12 MLS SuperDraft pick, select Emil Cuello at No. 19

Oregon state forward Don Tchilao selected in second round

MLS: SuperDraft Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

A delegation led by Dennis te Kloese and GBS made good use of the limited capital at their disposal, trading away their first round pick in the 2019 MLS SuperDraft to NYCFC for the No. 19 selection and $75,000 in General Allocation Money.

With the No. 19 pick the LA Galaxy drafted Emil Cuello from Southern Methodist University. A playmaking No. 10, the Argentine born Cuello is a Boca Juniors fanatic who should obviously relish playing for GBS.

With the 36th pick LA selected a player Dennis te Kloese would later admit was on their radar in Oregon state forward Don Tchilao to cap a successful day of business.
