LA Galaxy unveil De Jong as Nicky Butt returns home

The Los Angeles Galaxy officially unveiled their new signing Nigel de Jong on Tuesday.

The former Dutch international negotiated a release from the final two years of his contract with AC Milan to come to the MLS club and will join the likes of Robbie Keane, Steven Gerrard and Giovani dos Santos in Los Angeles.

Elsewhere, Manchester United have named former midfielder Nicky Butt as head of their academy.

The 41-year-old’s appointment follows the departures of youth academy director Brian McClair last June and last week’s exit of under-18s coach Paul McGuinness.

Butt, who was part of United’s ‘Class of 92’ along Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and David Beckham, made 387 appearances for the club and won six Premier League titles.
