JIMMY Gatete has penned a one-year deal at USA’s Major League Soccer (MLS) club Los Angeles Galaxy.
A source close to Gatete confirmed to Times Sport that the former Amavubi striker, also famously referred to as ‘god of goals’ by local fans, is the first Rwandan to feature in the American league and also play alongside former Manchester United, AC Milan and Real Madrid midfielder David Beckham.
Gatete is still rated as one of Rwanda’s most celebrated footballers of all time.
The former APR, Rayon and Police forward is best remembered for spearheading Rwanda’s qualification for the 2004 Africa Nations Cup in Tunisia.
