Francisco Mendoza nearly became full property of Chivas Guadalajara in the offseason. Instead, he is back with Chivas USA, but in a different capacity than in years past. Mendoza doesn't have a deal yet. His contract ran out at the end of last year and he hasn't signed a new deal yet.
He told me that his agent was working on a deal and that he expected everything to be taken care of by the start of the season.
Hopefully everything works out for him. He made roughly $90,000 a year ago, or thereabouts, and in my opinion deserves something north of $100,000.
