A familiar face has made his way back onto Chivas USA’s first team.
Chivas USA announced Tuesday afternoon the signing of forward Bryan de la Fuente, who was a former academy player for the Goats and a member of their first team in 2010 and 2011. The 21-year-old de la Fuente was most recently with Chivas USA’s Under-23 squad, helping that team become State Champions with three goals in a tournament that capped their undefeated season.
De la Fuente, who made his professional debut on Oct. 23, 2010 and spent some of 2012 under contract with Liga MX side Tijuana, will be eligible for selection in Chivas USA’s Western Conference showdown with FC Dallas on Wednesday.
Per club and league policy, details of the transacation were not made public.
What do you think of Chivas USA’s decision to bring back de la Fuente to their first team? Do you see him making an impact before the end of this season?
