Well, they're happy for him, just not that he was allowed to leave.

In his first full match as a Los Angeles F.C. player, Christian Ramirez scored both goals in a 2-0 win, breaking Minnesota United fans' hearts in the process.

Many Loons fans were gutted to see their star striker leave, with some less than happy with his treatment at the hands of head coach Adrian Heath, with whom he'd seemingly fallen out of favor.

So to see him move to a rival club and immediately start banging in the goals was pretty hard to take.

United got around $1 million in allocation money spread out over the next two years in return for trading Ramirez to LAFC.

A little bit happier about Ramirez's strikes was his close friend, Minnesota United midfielder Miguel Ibarra.

Here are Ramirez's two well-taken goals.
