In a triumphant display of skill and determination, the LA Galaxy kicked off their season in style with a commanding 3-1 win over the San Jose Earthquakes in the Cali Clasico.

Riqui Puig's performance in the match not only showcased his brilliance but also underscored his pivotal role in the Galaxy's success. Partnering with Dejan Joveljic, Puig's precision in front of goal complemented Joveljic's creative instincts, forming a dynamic duo that left the opposition in awe.

Spanish journalist Eduardo Burgos of AS was quick to recognize Puig's impact, dubbing him the "King of Los Angeles" in his post-match analysis. Burgos highlighted Puig's debut goal in the Cali Clasico as a testament to his rising prominence within the Galaxy squad, particularly in the absence of star players such as 'Chicharito' and Douglas Costa.

Burgos' sentiments were echoed by others in the Spanish press, who hailed Puig as a newfound star for the Galaxy. In just two games, Puig has emerged as a leader for a team in transition, stepping up when needed and delivering results on the field.

While Puig's influence on the Galaxy is undeniable, it's essential to recognize the contributions of other key players to the team's recent success. From new Designated Player Joseph Paintsil to seasoned veterans like Maya Yoshida and Mark Delgado, the Galaxy boasts a roster filled with talent and potential.
