In-form Mexican striker Erick “Cubo” Torres will remain with Chivas USA on loan from Chivas de Guadalajara for the remainder of the season with the option to purchase, the club announced Tuesday afternoon.
Torres ranks third among all scorers in Major League Soccer this season with nine goals for the Goats. The rest of the club has combined for five goals.
In 29 appearances for Chivas since his arrival in 2013, Torres has tallied 16 goals, tying him with former Chicago Fire forward Cuauhtémoc Blanco for the most goals by a Mexican player in MLS history.
The 21-year-old earned Chivas’ Golden Boot Award in 2013, leading the club with seven goals in 15 appearances.
