¡Los jugadores vuelven a adueñarse de Instagram! Después de consultar con la afición sobre quién debería hacerse cargo de la cuenta oficial de Instagram por un día, los aficionados eligieron al defensa Carlos Borja para tomar las riendas de la cuenta este miércoles, 3 de julio.

¿Tendrá éxito Carlos Borja en su toma de la cuenta de Instagram?

“Fácil. Carisma. Talento. Pasión. Tendré la BorjaCam, por supuesto. Voy a hacer lo que sea para conseguir hacerme de la cuenta”, Borja dijo.

Pero Carlos tiene mucho trabajo que hacer. Después de que el mediocampista Eric Avila tomara las riendas de la cuenta de Instagram a finales de marzo, los aficionados lo eligieron como el mejor del año. Cuando le preguntamos a Borja si su toma será mejor que la de Ávila, él no dudó sobre su respuesta, “Claro que sí, sin problema. Fácil”.

¿Que tendrá Borja para nosotros? Asegúrate de seguirnos en Instagram para ver qué pasa: @chivasusa

Instagram takeover with the players is back! After asking the fans for their opinion on who should takeover Chivas USA’s official Instagram account for one day, it has been determined that defender Carlos Borja will be the lucky one to takeover all day this Wednesday, July 3.

Will Carlos Borja succeed in his Instagram Takeover?

“Easy. Charisma. Talent. Passion. I’ll have the BorjaCam, ofcourse. Just gonna do whatever I can to take it over,” Borja said.

But Carlos has a lot of work to do. After midfielder Eric Avila took over Chivas USA’s Instagram account in late March, the fans voted him as the best takeover so far. When Borjas was asked if he’ll be able to surpass Ávila, the player didn’t have a doubt about his answer, “Of course I am, no problem. Easy.”

Chivas USA estuvo de fiesta en el entrenamiento de este miércoles en el Track and Field Stadium de El Home Depot Center con el motivo de despedir a Marky Delgado, quien se integrará a la Selección Sub-18 de Estados Unidos en Portugal, y para celebrar el decimo octavo cumpleaños del joven jugador.

Después de dos horas de entrenamiento, el grupo, liderado por el capitán Dan Kennedy, se alistó para echarle una nevera llena de hielo y agua al jugador. Tras la gran sorpresa, los jugadores presentaron a Marky con un pastel de cumpleaños, aniversario que cumplirá el día del jueves, pero que por motivos del viaje con la selección, la celebración tuvo que haber sido adelantada. Delgado se mostró sorprendido y contento por la celebración que le hicieron sus compañeros.

Chivas USA goalkeeper Dan Kennedy proved to have very little skills when it comes to video games. Ahead of this Sunday’s SuperClásico, Kennedy faced the LA Galaxy’s Robbie Keane to a game of FIFA 13.
