Chivas USA deals Bowen for veteran Mauro Rosales

December 12, 2013

In an effort to boost its offensive production, Chivas USA announced that the club has traded the rights to forward Tristan Bowen and the team's No. 2 allocation ranking to Seattle in exchange for veteran midfielder Mauro Rosales and Seattle’s No. 13 allocation ranking.

“Chivas is the team that has trusted me to help with what I’ve done in my last club, Seattle,” Rosales said. “Obviously I’m grateful for that confidence, and what the team is giving and betting on for next season."

During the past three seasons with the Sounders, the 5-8, 165-pound Rosales played a total of 86 games (73 starts), scoring 12 goals and adding 34 assists. In 2013, Rosales led Sounders FC with eight assists and 33 appearances, adding four goals. In his first year in MLS, the 32-year old midfielder was named MLS Newcomer of the Year.

Prior to playing in the MLS, Rosales spent time with Argentina powerhouse River Plate (2007-2010) and Newell’s Old Boys (1999-2004), as well as Holland’s AFC Ajax (2004-2007). On an international level, he earned a gold medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens with the Argentine National Team.
