The Los Angeles Galaxy won the MLS Cup in 2012, and should be favorites to do so again in 2013 if they can finish the offseason as strong as they’ve started it.

The latest push for a back-to-back-to-back run for the Galaxy came on Wednesday in the form of striker Robbie Keane signing a new, multi-year extension with the team. Terms of the deal were not released.

“The LA Galaxy announced today that the club has agreed to a multi-year contract extension with forward Robbie Keane,” the club announced via its official website.

Keane was named team MVP following the Galaxy’s championship run in 2012. On top of being a leader out on the pitch, the 32-year-old veteran provided a consistent offensive spark with 16 goals and nine assists in only 28 regular-season appearances. His production was just as impressive during the playoffs as Keane tallied six postseason scores to help lift the Galaxy to their second consecutive MLS Cup victory.

The Irish native joined the Galaxy on a transfer from West Ham United back in 2011, and has been a huge component to their success ever since.  Keane has already achieved the rare feat of scoring goals in competition for ten different clubs, and should find the back of the net plenty more in 2013 as part of a Galaxy team with their sights set on three straight.

Although David Beckham won’t be back in 2013, it’s great news for the Galaxy that they’ll have Keane back for at least a few more seasons.
