Pescado Galactico!/Galactic Fish!

Done Deal Ruiz to Galaxy..told ya so the signing is yet pending [press conference]

Carlos el ‘Pescado’ Ruiz formalizó ayer su contratación con el Galaxy, de los Angeles, de la liga estadounidense de fútbol, por lo que se estará integrando a dicho club antes del 15 de febrero, aunque aún falta la firma final, según dio a conocer una fuente escarlata.

De acuerdo a la información proporcionada, el delantero guatemalteco de 23 años , que participó recientemente en la Copa Oro 2002 con la selección nacional, llegó a un feliz término en las negociaciones, por lo en los próximos días estará vistiendo la camisola del cuadro angelino, uno de los más populares en la unión americana. Ruiz arregló su contratación por cuatro años.

En las cláusulas únicamente se estipula el pago mensual del salario, además de una prima para el cuadro rojo.

Pretemporada

El jugador escarlata tendrá que integrarse a su nuevo equipo antes del 15 de febrero, para poder estar presente en la pretemporada que realizarán en Santiago de Chile.

El Colo Colo, la Universidad Católica y el Everton serán los rivales, con un cuarto contrincante tentativo que podría ser el Santiago Wanderers, donde milita Dwight Pezzarossi.

Por ahora, Ruiz continuará la fase de preparación con Municipal e incluso tendrá acción este domingo en el partido de fogueo ante Juventud Retalteca, en Retalhuleu.

El Galaxy se convertirá en el segundo equipo donde el ‘Pescado’ milite en el extranjero, luego de jugar el año pasado en el Giannina, de Grecia.

IT'S OFFICIAL!


Los Angeles Galaxy Acquire Guatemalan Striker Carlos "Pescadito" Ruiz
PASADENA, CA (Tuesday, February 5, 2002) - The Los Angeles Galaxy has acquired Guatemalan striker Carlos Ruiz as a 2002 Discovery Player, it was announced today by Galaxy Vice President/General Manager Doug Hamilton. The move provides the team with a talented striker known for his finishing skills. Ruiz becomes the second Guatemalan in Galaxy history to join the team. No financial terms of the MLS contract were announced.

Ruiz will make his first showing as a Galaxy player in Chile later this month when the team plays a pair of international friendly matches against Colo Colo and Universidad de Chile.

"We are very pleased that we could acquire a player of his ability," said Hamilton. "His acquisition demonstrates our commitment to bring the Southern California soccer fan exciting, talented players."

"It's like dream come true, being able to play for such a great team like the Los Angeles Galaxy.'' said Ruiz from Guatemala. "In my country, there is a lot of respect for the MLS because of players like Martín Machón and Jorge Rodas who have played there. MLS is very popular among Guatemalan soccer fans."

The 22-year-old Ruiz, who began his professional career at 16 with CSD Municipal in 1995, was in Los Angeles last month with the Guatemalan National Team participating in the 2002 Football Confederation Gold Cup at the Rose Bowl.

"It is an exciting addition for the Galaxy and demonstrates our commitment to getting the best players we can for our team," said Galaxy Head Coach Sigi Schmid. "Acquiring a player from Central America illustrates our commitment to the Hispanic fans by looking in our own backyard for talent. Ruiz is a player who wants to achieve success in MLS. He has the potential to have a huge impact."

The 5-9, 170-pound Ruiz made his most significant impact by helping lead the Guatemalan National Team to the second round of the 2002 World Cup qualifying for Korea/Japan, tallying eight goals. Ruiz's goals included a late equalizer against the United States in a 1-1 draw on July 16 in Guatemala, before being eliminated in a second-round playoff match by Costa Rica.

"Carlos loves to be in the box, battle and finish off crosses," added Schmid, who has been following Ruiz's career for the past two years since first watching him during Olympic qualifying in Pennsylvania. "He complements the great young forwards that we have in Brian Mullan, Chris Albright and Sasha Victorine, who are very active and agile. We now have three, 23-year-old forwards (Mullan and Albright) who are as good a group of young forwards anywhere in the league."

Known as "The Little Fish" (Pescadito), Ruiz exploded onto the international scene as captain of the 2000 Guatemalan Olympic Team, turning heads during CONCACAF qualification and leading Guatemala to within one game of reaching the Olympics in Sydney, Australia. He was Guatemala's leading scorer with two goals, while facing off against his new teammates Danny Califf and Peter Vagenas in the semifinals.

As a member of the Guatemalan National Youth System, Ruiz participated Guatemalan at the Under-17, Under-19, Under-21 and Under-23 national teams before joining the full national team. He made his full national team debut when he appeared in a benefit match for the victims of Hurricane Mitch. In 1999, Ruiz recorded his first goal with the full national team in a UNCAF match vs. El Salvador in Costa Rica.

Ruiz began his soccer-playing career at 12-years-old, joining Municipal's youth academy. In 1995, he made his professional debut in a match against Xelaju Mario Caposeco of the Guatemalan First Division.

Ruiz becomes the Galaxy's ninth all-time Discovery Player following Alexi Lalas (2001), Craig Waibel (2001), Ivan Polic (2000), Sebastien Vorbe (2000), Simon Elliott (1999), Jaime Caicedo (1999), David Quesada (1998) and Arash Noamouz (1996). Elliott, Lalas and Waibel are the only Discovery Players who are still with the squad.

Galaxy sign Guatemalan international

05 February 2002 (www.Teamtalk.com) --

The Los Angeles Galaxy announced the acquisition of Guatemalan international Carlos Ruiz as a Discovery Player on Tuesday.
Major League Soccer signed Ruiz and then allocated him to Los Angeles as a Discovery Player. Financial terms were not disclosed, but he is believed to have assumed much of the salary cleared by the release of marquee player Luis Hernandez.

"We are very pleased that we could acquire a player of his ability," said new LA General Manager Doug Hamilton. "His acquisition demonstrates our commitment to bring the Southern California soccer fan exciting, talented players."

The 22-year-old striker will join the team later this month in Chile, where the Galaxy have a pair a pair of international friendlies scheduled against Colo Colo and Universidad de Chile.

"It's like dream come true, being able to play for such a great team like the Los Angeles Galaxy,” Ruiz said. "In my country, there is a lot of respect for the MLS because of players like Martín Machón and Jorge Rodas who have played there. MLS is very popular among Guatemalan soccer fans."

The 22-year-old Ruiz, known as "The Little Fish" (Pescadito), was in Los Angeles last month with the Guatemalan national team participating in the Gold Cup at the Rose Bowl.

"It is an exciting addition for the Galaxy and demonstrates our commitment to getting the best players we can for our team," said Galaxy Head Coach Sigi Schmid. “Acquiring a player from Central America illustrates our commitment to the Hispanic fans by looking in our own backyard for talent. Ruiz is a player who wants to achieve success in MLS. He has the potential to have a huge impact."

The short, stout Ruiz helped lead the Guatemalan national team to within a game of the final round of CONCACAF qualifying for the World Cup, losing in a play-off match with eventual qualification leaders Costa Rica. He has 12 goals in 24 international appearances.

"Carlos loves to be in the box, battle and finish off crosses," Schmid said. "He complements the great young forwards that we have in Brian Mullan, Chris Albright and Sasha Victorine, who are very active and agile. We now have three, 23-year-old forwards (Mullan and Albright) who are as good a group of young forwards anywhere in the league."

Ruiz’s last club was Guatemalan power CSD Municipal, who are among the teams competing in this year’s FC Champions Cup, taking on the Chicago Fire in round one.
