Chelís: Says that Alvarez is his man. - Jeff Golden
So far, it looks like the Chivas boss is shooting from the hip at the MLS Combine.
He could be giving us all the okey-doke, but in a video interview with the Spanish wing of MLSsoccer.com today, Chivas USA coach Jose Luis Sanchez Sola, better known as Chelis, said he wanted the club to select UConn midfielder Carlos Alvarez with the second overall pick on Thursday.
Lucky for those of you who don't speak Spanish, Chelís' comments were translated on the video:
At the moment, Chivas USA only has one SuperDraft pick, so unless they make some sort of trade, either Lopez or Alvarez will be disappointed. Of course, let's also allow for the possibility that Chelís is trying out some gamesmanship to get another player, but it seems unlikely that Toronto FC will be interested in Lopez or Alvarez with the top pick. We'll know for sure Thursday, but for now, it looks like it very well could be Alvarez.
