Guevara Happy with Chivas Move

Amado Guevara says he isn't at all displeased with the trade that sends him from the New York Red Bulls to Long Beach's Chivas USA. "In New York, I was fine. I had many individual accomplishments but for me those are not enough.

The move to Chivas USA, of course, reunites the 2004 MLS MVP with Bob Bradley, his first MLS coach. "His goal is mine and that's to win a title," Guevara said of Bradley, who is the reigning MLS Coach of the Year. "I am confident and I know that I will accomplish that with him." Bradley was equally full of praise of Guevara, singling out the midfielder's willingness to do whatever it takes for his team to win-the quality of leaders and captains. Luis Bueno of LA Soccer News points out that Guevara, a Honduran international, is now the highest-profile Central American player in Los Angeles, a fact that isn't lost on Bradley or, perhaps, Chivas USA's latino fan base.
