“Mark is a really important player for us,” – said LAFC head coach Bob Bradley. “From the start–he was open, he listened, and he applied our ideas. Before the injury, he was improving week by week. He has a bright future and I believe he will be back better than ever next year.“
Mark-Anthony Kaye joined LAFC in early 2018 after spending the previous two seasons in USL with Louisville City FC. In his rookie season with the team, Kaye managed to top everyone’s expectations and become an integral part of the team’s midfield. He managed to contribute two goals and five assists in 20 games, before going down with an ankle injury.
“It’s an honor to wear the Black & Gold and I’m forever grateful for this opportunity,”- said Kaye after inking the deal. “I believe this is an important step and the right direction in my career. I look forward to coming back even stronger in 2019.”
