Not if but how many

According to Mural, Chivas USA will leave Mexico with at least one, if not two or more Mexican players. CD Guadalajara Vice President Nestor De La Torre told Mural that the club is weighing options and has not made a decision regarding reinforcements for Chivas USA, and did not deny the possibility of some of the names the paper mentioned who could join Chivas USA.

The names tossed around are Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez, Jesus "Gringo" Padilla and Antonio "Hulk" Salazar.

Mural's story included a quote from Preki, who told the paper was not "antimexicanos" - anti-Mexican - and preferred to have good players from Guadalajara, not just players who were not going to be in the mix at all for Chivas.

Both Hernandez and Padilla (who was born in California) have played in the Clausura 2009 season. Hernandez even scored a goal, in a 2-1 win in Monterrey. Salazar, who is also a forward, has not played for the first team this season.

Nice words from Preki, quality not quantity.

I wonder why its taken this long for Preki to go to Guadalajara?

Luis do you think Suarez will be back for Chivas USA or will Jesse March be captain 09?

Can Chivas USA find a Mexican player good enough to make a impact with Chivas USA?
