Joseph Paintsil will be successful at LA Galaxy, says head coach Greg Vanney

LA Galaxy head coach, Greg Vanney is confident Joseph Paintsil will be successful at the club.

The Ghana international made a switch to the Major League Soccer (MLS) in January on a long-term deal. The 26-year-old has already scored two goals in seven appearances for the club with two assists to his credit.

Speaking to The Athletic in an interview, Vanney said Paintsil is aware of what he will need to leave a good mark at the club.

According to him, the former KRC Genk attacker is determined to be successful at the club by winning trophies.

“He’s aware of what it takes to leave a legacy behind and that’s one of the reasons why he came here, to help the club be successful and for him to be successful in the process and leave a legacy and make a mark,” Vanney said.

Drawing from his experience with other notable players like Sebastian Giovinco, Jozy Altidore, and Michael Bradley, Vanney noted their shared desire to establish a legacy and become key figures in their clubs’ histories.

Vanney underscored Paintsil’s similar mindset and determination to drive the team towards success.

“That’s something that I’ve learned over the years. The DPs, especially guys like Sebastian Giovinco, who come in their prime, and Jozy (Altidore) when he came back in his prime, and Michael (Bradley), is they come back for a different reason. They want to create a legacy, build a legacy, be a really important player at a club like the Galaxy or somewhere, and they want to be winners, they want to lift trophies and etch their name in stone somewhere and be important in those places.
