Chivas USA selects forward, defender in MLS draft

CARSON, Calif. -- Chivas USA reinforced its offense Friday by selecting forward John Cunliffe, the NCAA Division II player of the year, in the MLS SuperDraft in Indianapolis and acquiring forward David Arvizu from the New York Red Bulls.

Chivas USA used its only other draft pick to select defender Cameron Dunn from UC Irvine in the fourth round.

The club seeks to compensate for the losses of forward Francisco Palencia and midfielder Juan Pablo Garcia, who returned to Mexico. Garcia was Chivas USA's second-leading scorer last year with eight goals and six assists.

Cunliffe, a native of England, was the seventh overall pick in the draft. He scored 29 goals in 24 games last year to lead Fort Lewis College of Durango, Colo., to the NCAA Division II men's final. He finished his collegiate career with 75 goals and 62 assists in 86 games.

Arvizu, from Santa Ana, was acquired from New York for a fourth-round supplemental pick in this year's draft. The 18-year-old forward played for the United States in last year's FIFA Under-17 World Championships and didn't play at all for the Red Bulls. He is training with the national team for this summer's FIFA Under -20 World Cup in Canada.

Chivas USA GM Whit Haskell said the team has chosen a new head coach and will make the announcement next week. The team had planned to announce a replacement for Bob Bradley before the draft but postponed it after the Los Angeles Galaxy signed David Beckham on Thursday. Bradley was named interim coach of the United States national team last month.
