[MLS TRANSACTIONS] Changes at Chivas USA continued as Francisco Palencia left the club as director of soccer and it parted ways with 10 players, including a pair of starters, Mario de Luna and Edgar Mejia. The moves bring to 29 the total number of players the club has gotten rid of in 2013.

Palencia has returned to Mexico, where he was appointed as sporting director at Chivas de Guadalajara. De Luna and Mejia, along with Mexican-Americans Jaime Frias and Julio Morales returned to Guadalajara as their loan deals ended.

Rojiblancos declined options for goalkeeper Patrick McLain, defender Steven Purdy, midfielders Daniel Antunez, Marvin Iraheta and Josue Soto and forward Jose Manuel Rivera.
 
The moves leave 19 players on the Chivas USA roster.

At the press conference in Guadalajara to announce Palencia's arrival, Dennis Te Kloese, the sporting president for both Chivas de Guadalajara and Chivas USA, confirmed that Chivas USA's best Mexican import, Erick Torres, would return in 2013.
