[AMERICANS ABROAD] Chivas USA left back Jonathan Bornstein, who played two games for the USA at the 2010 World Cup, will join Mexican first division club Tigres UANL following the 2010 MLS season.

Bornstein, a 25-year-old Southern California product whose mother is from Mexico, has played in MLS since 2006 after playing college ball at UCLA.

Tigres, which missed the playoffs last season, finished runner-up in 2001 and 2003. Former U.S. national team star Tab Ramos played for the Monterrey-based club in 1995-96.

“First and foremost, I remain focused on finishing this season with Chivas USA,” Bornstein said in a club statement. “There is a lot we can accomplish, from SuperLiga this week to the [U.S.] Open Cup semifinals in September, getting into the playoffs and making a run at MLS Cup. I’m excited to join Tigres and ready for all the changes that will come with the move. It will be a big moment for me and I’m looking forward to it.”

Bornstein earned MLS Rookie of the Year honors in 2006. He has 34 caps for the USA and made his World Cup debut in the 1-0 win over Algeria that clinched second-round passage. He started in the 2-1 loss to Ghana in the round of 16.

    Sorry to see him and Sascha go but the $$ pay is significantly better in Mexico and Belgium than MLS so it is not surprising. Now Chivas LA had better make some good transfers to help the team from keep dwelling in the shadows of the Galaxy.

    Buena suerte Jona Bernstein! Here's the best of luck that your transfer to Mexico will be very instructional and beneficial, and perhaps you can return to chivas USA, a ver que pasa, pero que te vaya muy bien!

    I neglected to mention that he is the most ppular player in Honduras after his late goal against Costa Rica helped Honduras qualify for the WC. Perhaps a future move to Olimpia or Marathon is possible. :)
