Ives believes that Angel most likely was thinking of his family when deciding to accept a move to Chivas.
Betting that family ultimately helped Angel's decision. His family just got2 LA few months ago. Uprooting them right away wouldve been tough
Angel was linked heavily to the Philadelphia Union because of his relationship with Faryd Mondragon - he's the godfather of Mondragon's kids - and his reported insistence on going to Philly or seeking out retirement. Additionally, the Galaxy had to move Angel in order to have an open designated player slot for new signing Robbie Keane.
