Chivas USA was visited today by a group of Youth Academy coaches including Sacha van der Most and Jose “Cuco” Mancilla, both Chivas USA U-18 coaches, as well as Samuel Rivas, from the Chivas USA U-16 team.

All of them coached Bryan de la Fuente, who was signed by the Red-and-White this week from the Youth Academy.

 “For me it wasn’t a surprise that he made the first team. I was so glad when I got the news, he came to the Academy since it first started. He always had the right attitude, he would listen when you would tell him he was doing something wrong. I think for young guys to become professionals , they need to listen to their coaches,”

- Rivas, who met de la Fuente when he was 14 years-old.

The team practiced shots on goal and played short-sided games with mixed line-ups.

Chivas USA will train tomorrow again ahead of its match against D.C. United on Sunday at 7 p.m.
