Juan Agudelo joins Chivas USA

By Olivia Cervantes

Young and talented striker Juan Agudelo joins Chivas USA after two seasons with the New York Red Bulls. Colombian-born Agudelo has made 33 appearances (13 starts), notched six goals and sums two assists in his three years in Major League Soccer.  The 19 year-old star will be available for the SuperClásico vs LA Galaxy this Saturday at The Home Depot Center.

Most recently, Agudelo represented the United States in March’s 2012 CONCACAF Olympic Qualifiers along with the U23 squad that included current Chivas USA midfielder Jorge Villafaña. Agudelo earned his first appearance with the US First Team National squad on November 17, 2010 when the Americans faced South Africa in a friendly held in Cape Town where the young striker scored his first goal, and the only one of the match, to give the US a 1-0 victory.

Aside from his soccer, Juan enjoys watching basketball; his favorite athlete is Kobe Bryant. Anyone want to invite him to a Laker game?
