More fuel for the idea frenetic midfielder Francisco Mendoza,23, has exited Chivas USA for good after scoring five goals in 111 games (a record for a Mexican in MLS), although we may well see him play one last time in Carson.
From the Chivas USA press release:
Under head coach Efran Flores, Chivas de Guadalajara is currently preparing for the upcoming InterLiga tournament. Guadalajara faces Atlas and Club Amrica in Texas and then Tigres UANL Jan. 9 at Home Depot Center in the final doubleheader of the tournament’s opening round.
Chivas de Guadalajara opens its 17-game Clausura 2009 campaign on Jan. 17 when it hosts Cruz Azul at Estadio Jalisco.
Mendoza will join up with Chivas at their preseason camp.
