  • Eduardo Lillingston, Player Signings

Chivas USA have added a forward in hopes to boost their attack in 2009. The club announced the signing of Mexican forward Eduardo Lillingston. The 31-year-old has been training with the club during the pre-season.

“Eduardo is an experienced player who has shown a good workrate and positive attitude since joining us at our preseason camp in Guadalajara,” said Chivas USA Head Coach Preki. “We are happy to have him join our club and look forward to his contributions to Chivas USA this season.”

Lillingston has suited up for Mexican clubs Toluca, Santos, Atlas, and Tecos UAG, scoring 57 goals in his 12 years of professional soccer.

The signing comes at a good time since the AmeriGoats are injured all over at the striker position. Ante Razov is not expected to play for another month, Alecko Eskandarian and Atiba Harris have yet to fully recovery from their respective injuries, and Maykel Galindo will only be used from the bench until he regains fitness and health following a sports hernia surgery in the offseason.
