Starting out the day with some retirement news. Chivas USA midfielder Raphael Wicky has decided to retire today. The Swiss midfielder cited personal reasons for the retirement. Wicky originally joined Chivas USA before the 2008 season, during which he made just five appearances for the Red-and-White, due to a series of injuries.

“I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to everyone at Chivas USA for giving me the opportunity to play in Major League Soccer,” said Wicky. “I had a wonderful experience with the club, and only wish that I could have contributed more on the field.”

This honestly wasn’t a huge shocker to me. Wicky was hit with the massive injury bug that hurt the AmeriGoats all last season.
