Guess he passed the trial.
Chivas USA trialist Agustin Pelletieri has latched on with the club on a permanent basis, as expected.
The 31-year-old last played for Argentina’s Racing Club de Avellaneda.
“Agustin is a very experienced and important player, who will be an asset to our team,” said Chivas USA Head Coach Wilmer Cabrera. “He has been a captain for a very important club in Argentina for the past four years so he brings leadership on and off the field, which is a very important aspect for us to try to get the results we need this season.”
“Technically, he is a very smart player who knows his position very well. He is fantastic at reading the game, and has a very good idea of how to win, possess and distribute the ball. He is a well-rounded player in all aspects.”
Meanwhile, Los Angeles-based soccer scribe Luis Bueno provides his thoughts on the re-branding of Chivas USA that increasingly looks a case of if, and not when, it’s going to happen.
