CARSON, Calif. -- The Los Angeles Galaxy acquired midfielder Stefani Miglioranzi from the Columbus Crew for a conditional fourth-round pick in the 2010 MLS SuperDraft.
Miglioranzi, a 31-year-old Brazilian, began his MLS career with the Galaxy in 2006, appearing in three games before being traded to Columbus after the season. He played in England with Portsmouth and Swindon Town for eight years before joining the Galaxy.
Miglioranzi had three goals and three assists in 37 games over two seasons at Columbus.
The Galaxy also announced Friday that Paul Bravo, the team's director of soccer, has left to become technical director for the Colorado Rapids.
The 40-year-old Bravo played for the Rapids from 1997-2001 before joining their coaching staff in 2002. He joined the Galaxy in June 2006 as an assistant to then-coach Frank Yallop, and held that position for a little over a year before becoming director of soccer.
