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 had a reason to celebrate in this Wednesday’s training session at The Home Depot Center’s Track and Field Stadium; the team bid Marky Delgado farewell as the youngster joins the U.S. U18 squad in Portugal and celebrated his 18th birthday.

After two hours of strenuous training, the group, led by Captain Dan Kennedy, prepared to throw Delgado a cooler full of ice and water. After the icy surprise, players presented Marky with a Birthday cake, who turns 18 on Thursday, but due to international duty, the celebration was moved to Wednesday. Delgado was surprised and happy with the celebration his teammates had in store for him.
