Chivas USA sends Rosales to 'Caps for Reo-Coker

MOST COMMENTED

[MLS TRANSACTIONS] Mauro Rosales is on the move again. After only nine months with Chivas USA, the Argentine midfielder has been traded to the Vancouver Whitecaps for unsettled English midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker.

Rosales joined Chivas USA from Seattle following the 2013 season. He was named the 2011 MLS Newcomer of the Year with the Sounders and had 34 assists in 86 games with them. He led Chivas USA with eight assists in 21 games. Chivas USA, in limbo following the sale of the club to MLS, is in last place in the Western Conference.

After starting 31 of 34 games in 2013, Reo-Coker, 30, has made just eight starts for the 'Caps in 2014. Reo-Coker lost his starting spot after suffering a concussion in an off-field accident when he walked into a bike rack and fell. He joined Vancouver last season after 11 years in the EPL with Aston Villa, Bolton Wanderers and West Ham United.

“Nigel is a fantastic box-to-box player that has proven to be a leader in this league,” said Chivas USA coach Wilmer Cabrera. “He is an unbelievably versatile player. We feel he can help us with his defending as well as going forward in the attack. We see his experience, leadership and great technique helping us in a lot of ways.”
