Chivas USA Signs Serbian Winger

After training with Chivas USA for the last month, Serbian winger Bojan Stepanovic, 26, signed today as an international player.

The midfielder joins from Serbian side FK Srem and could make his debut at noon Sunday against FC Dallas in a game live on prime and TeleFutura.

“Bojan Stepanovic is a solid offensive player who hits a good final pass and can play on either side of the field,” said Coach Preki, who said on the team’s blog he saw him play a few years ago and kept an eye on him. “He fits well with how we play here and we hope he will bring a lot of good qualities to our team”

Stepanovic played from 2007-2009 for FK Srem of Serbia’s First League (second division) and also played in the 2005-2006 season with Serbian First League club FK Vozdovac.

To make room on the senior roster, forward Justin Braun has been designated as a developmental player.
