Jazic signs, Chivas USA awaits word on Razov

[MLS] Chivas USA opens its preseason training camp Wednesday with only one of its two Antes under contract.

Left back/midfielder Ante Jazic, acquired from Los Angeles in a SuperDraft-day trade Jan. 15, has agreed to a new contract, presumably one that will pay him much less than the $120,000 base salary he earned last year.

Jazic, a Canadian international who grew up in Nova Scotia and played several seasons in Croatia as well as in Austria and Russia before joining the Galaxy in 2006, has played 44 MLS games. He also has 25 caps and one goal for Canada since making his national-team debut in 1998.

"Ante Jazic's versatility and international experience make him a great addition to our squad," said Chivas USA coach Preki. "Ante can play in the back and in midfield and gives us added depth on the left side."

Jazic, 32, began his professional career with NK Hrvatski Dragovoljac before moving to Hajduk Split, which he helped win Croatian First Division titles in 1999 and 2000. Stints with Rapid Vienna (Austria) and Kuban Kraznodor (Russia) followed before he joined Los Angeles. Since making his debut for the Canadian national team in 1998, he has earned 25 caps, scoring one goal.

Listed on the preseason roster but out of contract is striker Ante Razov, who scored five goals in 2008 and had been linked with Mexican club Leon before Christmas.
