Training Report: March 13

By Olivia Cervantes

Big week ahead for Chivas USA as Rivalry Week looms over MLS and the first SuperClásico of the season is four days away.

Coach Jose Luis Sanchez Solá, “El Chelis,” travelled to Mexico after Sunday’s game; his third grandchild was born on Thursday. Chelis returned to training Wednesday morning to continue working towards Sunday’s game against the LA Galaxy.

After the end of Sunday’s game, the scoreboard and passing accuracy percentage were positive for Chivas, a turnaround from the first game of the season. The Goats continued perfecting this skill in Wednesday’s training, as well as working on strength and conditioning.

Two former Chivas USA Academy players joined the First Team for training this morning. Eric Gonzalez, a freshman at UC Riverside, and Brendan Hines-Ike, a freshman at Creighton University, played for the Red-and-White U18’s last season. The two players will be at training camp with the Goats for the rest of the week.

Chivas USA will train everyday this week at 10:30 am at The Home Depot Center’s Field 6. For all training updates, follow us on Twitter: @cdchivasusa
