Seems that Chivas USA has finally bulked up its roster for the stretch run. Aside from bringing in Cubans Lester More and Osvaldo Alonso, Chivas had done virtually nothing to reinforce their roster until now.
The club has brought in Raphael Wicky, a team source told me. There's no word yet on when he may play but work visas and contracts and all that good stuff have yet to be hammered out.
Though Wicky doesn't address the offensive issues that have plagued the club this season, his experience is superb. Wicky played in all four of Switzerland's games in the 2006 World Cup and also started all three of Switzerland's matches in Euro 2004. Wicky started his career with Swiss side FC Sion and moved to Werder Bremen after winning a domestic double. He joined Atletico Madrid afterward and spent the last five years with German side Hamburg.
We'll keep you up to speed on this transaction.
