Favio Alvarez to wear No. 11

Previously worn by old school attackers such as Harut Karapetyan and Brazilian forward Welton, Favio Alvarez will don the No. 11 jersey for the LA Galaxy.

The 26-year old Argentine signed with Target Allocation Funds the final day of the transfer deadline was spotted wearing the number in training before a photoshoot in the afternoon confirmed the news. It must be said, the number looks good on LA’s newest attacking weapon.

There was also speculation as to whether Favio Alvarez would go with “Favio” on the back of his kit or share his last name with Efrain Alvarez. Looks like Alvarez went with the latter.

The team is still waiting for the Argentine’s paperwork which has yet to clear ahead of Saturday’s home matchup vs. New York City FC, The status of Jona dos Santos, who exited Wednesday’s match with a hamstring tweak, is up in the air as well. We’ll know more in the coming days.
