In preparation for 2023 MLS NEXT Pro Season, LAFC2 announces roster and coaching staff
LAFC2 announces roster and coaching staff prior to the 2023 MLS NEXT Pro Season beginning on Sunday, March 26. In their first match, LAFC2 plays against North Texas SC at Titan Stadium on the Cal State Fullerton campus. The game will be broadcast on MLS Season Pass on Apple TV and will kick off at 5 PM PT.
There are 11 players on the LAFC2 roster that have 2023 MLS NEXT Pro Season contracts, including Christopher Jaime, a product of the LAFC Academy and the first player to sign a LAFC MLS NEXT Pro deal in September 2022.
Jassem Koleilat and Noah Dollenmayer, two LAFC MLS 2023 SuperDraft picks, as well as Diego Rosales and Bryan Moyado, former LAFC Academy players, are all on the roster. Rosales and Moyado were a part of the Club’s first ever academy team when they joined the LAFC Academy in 2016 at the U-12 level. Moyado was selected for the MLS Next West All-Star Game in 2022.
As LAFC2 announces roster and coaching staff , Enrique Duran will be head coach. The remaining staff features Stephen Campos, who will be the assistant head coach, and Omar Zeenni, who is the goalkeeper coach.
Campos spent the last five seasons as an assistant coach and strength and conditioning coach with the Las Vegas Lights FC. Campos worked for Steve Cherundolo in 2021 and for Duran in 2022.
Zeeni initially worked with Cherundolo and Duran’s coaching staff for the last two seasons at LAFC’s previous USL Affiliate, the Las Vegas Lights FC.
