Overview


Michael Lahoud joined Chivas USA after being selected by the club in the first round (9th overall) of the 2009 MLS SuperDraft, and has made 39 appearances in two seasons with the club, including 29 starts, scoring once and adding four assists. A four-year starter at 2007 NCAA National Champion Wake Forest, Lahoud enjoyed a distinguished college career with the Demon Deacons, finishing with 14 goals and 20 assists in four seasons. Born in Freetown, Sierra Leone and moving to the Washington D.C. area at the age of three, Lahoud played both forward and midfield in his college career, but finished in a defensive midfield role.

In addition to his on-field accomplishments, Lahoud has become one of Chivas USA’s most active and involved community leaders. Among the many charities and organizations that he works with is Compton United, a youth soccer program that mentors and trains at-risk children. Lahoud attends the club’s training sessions on Thursdays, working with kids to develop both soccer and life skills. He has also worked with the Wall-Las Memorias Project, donated time to the Haiti earthquake relief effort at a pair of events, and helped Chrysalis, an organization which helps find jobs for impoverished and homeless people in Los Angeles. In 2011, Lahoud joined forces with the non-profit organization ‘Schools for Salone,’ charity that aims to help schools in Sierra Leone. For his efforts, Lahoud was named Chivas USA’s Humanitarian of the Year in 2011.

He finished with 14 goals and 20 assists in four seasons, helping the team to the NCAA National Championship in 2007, and final four appearances in 2006 and 2008.
