Angel is a 'win-win' for Chivas USA

MOST COMMENTED

The deal to send Colombian star Juan Pablo Angel from the Los Angeles Galaxy to Chivas USA was finally made official on Wednesday. The Galaxy was forced to part with the veteran striker to make room for Robbie Keane as its third Designated Player, and its compensation was modest to say the least -- a third-round selection in next year's supplemental draft.

There was no word on how of Angel's $1 million base salary the Galaxy agreed to pay in order for Chivas USA to take him. He trained with Chivas USA on Tuesday and could play for Chivas USA, which is in contention for a playoff berth, when it travels to Colorado on Saturday.

“Juan Pablo is a great pickup for us because he knows how to score goals and has scored the most goals in the league through the last five years,” Galaxy head coach Robin Fraser said in a statement. “Outside of his experience and ability on the field, he’s a classy person, and I think that another experienced classy person in our locker room is a positive. It is a win-win when you get a good player and a good person who fits into what we are trying to do."
