GALAXY: Kirovski mystery solved

It took a day, but the Galaxy has traced the mystery of what's going on with Jovan Kirovski.

The veteran midfielder, 35, had been left off L.A.'s protected and unprotected lists for Wednesday's Major League Soccer expansion draft, which suggested he was calling it quits.

The real reason is simpler. And not nearly so exciting.

Oversight.

Kirovski was supposed to be on the unprotected list, meaning the Montreal Impact, MLS's 19th club, can claim him if they desire. And now that's the list he's on.
