Kansas City, MO (Friday, July 08, 2011) - A high spirited Chivas USA team arrived in “The City of Fountains” this Thursday afternoon. And for the first time since a pre-season trip to Dallas, Jimmy Conrad traveled with the Goats once again.

Jimmy Conrad participated actively during today’s training session at Swope Park facility and took a lead role for a better part of the warm-ups. When asked about this new activity for him within the team he responded, “Carlos Llamosa (Chivas USA Assistant Coach) is on assignment in Colombia and since I’m not playing, I’m doing everything I can to help the team”.

When asked, head coach Robin Fraser about tomorrow’s game, he gave his keys to victory: “We sorted out a few things team wise, our concepts are pretty solid, but It’s gonna come down to execution. We did a good job of not giving the other team opportunities, we’d like to limit their opportunities and certainly we need to be able to execute offensively”.

From the city famous for its jazz and barbecue Chivas USA will attempt to follow their winning ways when they take on KC’s team. Don’t miss Sporting Kansas City vs. Chivas USA this Saturday July 9th live from LIVESTRONG Sporting Park at 4:30 pm PT on Galavision TV and W690 AM Radio.
