Bornstein says adios to Chivas USA

MOST COMMENTED

Jonathan Bornstein, whose entire soccer career -- from youth through college to pros -- has played out in his native Southern California, will play two more games for Chivas USA this week and then head to Mexico's Tigres in Monterrey. The 25-year-old was born in Torrance, was a longtime Los Alamitos resident, played college soccer at Cal Poly Pomona and UCLA, and joined Carson-based Chivas USA in 2006 as a fourth-round draft pick.

"I'm ready for that new challenge, that new experience, the change in lifestyle and ultimately learning about the culture and finally the soccer," Bornstein said. "I'm just really looking forward to playing in that league and getting better as a player.

"It's come to a time in my life where I'm about ready to do that. I never shied away from moving away - it's just the opportunities that arose for me in terms of where to go play for college, in terms of playing professionally, were within the general location of Southern California. If anything I was lucky not to move far away. I've had the opportunity to travel the world with Chivas and the U.S. national team. So I've seen the world in that respect, but never had to leave home."

Bornstein was MLS Rookie of the Year in 2006, scored on his national team debut at Home Depot Center in January 2007 and played at the 2010 World Cup. He is Chivas USA's all-time leader in games played and starts.
