RSL Insider: Risk and reward in 2007 trade with the LA Galaxy

08/15/2013

On June 21, 2007 Real Salt Lake head coach Jason Kreis traded away a veteran and close friend in Chris Klein in hopes of making the Claret-and-Cobalt younger and deeper. The trade with the LA Galaxy saw two unproven youngsters in Nathan Sturgis and Robbie Findley join RSL midway through the 2007 season with Findley netting a brace just two days later in his Real Salt Lake debut. Fast forward to 2013 and the speedy forward is in his second stint with RSL and currently sits third on the Claret and Cobalts all-time leading goal scorers list.
