Moving to the United States to play professional soccer can be tough, especially if you don't speak the language and have never visited the country before. But Chivas USA's Bojan
is finding success both on and off the field. He has grown more accustomed to his new team and his new home in Los Angeles.
"I feel really good," said
Stepanovic through an interpreter, teammate Ante Jazic
. "The start was tough, coming to a new country, but every day I'm feeling more comfortable." Stepanovic made his
first appearance against FC Dallas, coming on as a substitute in the 69th minute. He scored just six minutes later, hitting a low shot to ice the game 2-0 for Chivas. Since then Stepanovic has
appeared in seven of nine games, finding time amid a deep group of Chivas midfielders.
Stepanovic has had a harder time adjusting to California."The language barrier has been

makes life easier, and am living with a Serbian roommate in Hollywood."
