The LA Galaxy decided to re-sign forward Ola Kamara to a three year contract extension on Tuesday. The contract will see Kamara earn an average of $1 million per season over the next three seasons.
Kamara is in his first season with the Galaxy. So far during the 2018 Major League Soccer season he has one goal in four games. His goal came in the Galaxy's 2-1 win over the Portland Timbers in the Galaxy's regular season opener at the StubHub Center on March 4. In addition to his goal, Kamara has nine shots and four shots on goal.
Kamara was also very active in the Galaxy's 2-0 loss to Real Salt Lake on Sunday. Kamara tied for the team lead in shots with five. Zlatan Ibrahimovic also had five shots on goal for the Galaxy.
Kamara, who plays for the Norwegian national team, is now in his third year in Major League Soccer. Prior to this season he played the 2016 and 2017 Major League Soccer seasons with the Columbus Crew. Kamara was traded from the Crew to the LA Galaxy for Gyasi Zardes and $400,000 in targeted allocation money. Kamara meanwhile made the most of his time with the Crew as he notched 34 goals in 59 games.
