03 April 3:58 pm

Five games played, four of them as a starter. With a solid game against Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Saturday, Chivas USA defender Bobby Burling has made it to MLSsoccer.com’s Team of the Week! Burling has stood out in the Red-and-White’s three-man backline, helping the team to second place in the Western Conference with a 3-1-1 record.  

Burling has made it to Coach Chelis’ starting line-up with hard work during the team's training sessions, heading the ball into the back of the net during inter-squad scrimmages on multiple occasions. With the ideal height, Burling is bound to score his first goal for Chivas USA soon. Check out one of his attempts from Saturday’s game against the ‘Caps:
