He’s 25-year-old Brazilian forward Maicon Santos, who has trained with the club since Aug. 3.
Santos comes on loan from Brazilian club Bonsucesso and is eligible to play Saturday against Toronto.
“Maicon is a strong forward who can give us a spark in the attacking third,” said Chivas USA Coach Preki, who desperately needs to bolster an anemic attack (last week he signed young striker Jesus Padilla from CD Guadalajara).
Santos has also played for clubs in Tunisia, Libya, and Israel.
Also Friday, Chivas USA placed midfielder Kevin Harmse on the disabled list with right knee tendonitis. Acquired in June from Toronto, the former Galaxy midfielder has yet to play a minute for his latest club.
