24 Under 24: Marvin Iraheta

By Olivia Cervantes

In the first Chivas USA game of the preseason, midfielder Marvin Iraheta tore his ACL and since, he’s undergone a successful surgery but has been kept out of any action on the field. The 20-year old Iraheta arrived in the United States just four years ago from his native El Salvador. Upon his arrival, Iraheta was asked to join the Cosmos Academy West , a Western Division of the New York Cosmos Academy (merged with Chivas USA’s Youth Academy in 2011), playing in many matches that include a friendly against English powerhouse Manchester United in Old Trafford back in 2011.

But things may start looking up for the young Salvadoran midfielder as he was just moved from “Out” to “Doubtful” in the team’s injury list and his debut may come soon.
