Chivas USA signs Swiss midfielder Wicky

CARSON, Calif. -- Chivas USA signed midfielder Raphael Wicky, a World Cup veteran with more than a decade of professional experience in Germany, Spain and Switzerland.

The 30-year-old player joins Chivas USA as an international player, pending receipt of his work visa and international transfer certificate, the team said Monday.

Wicky has made more than 70 appearances for the Swiss national team, including as a starter at the 2004 European championships and the 2006 World Cup. He also played in the Champions League.

"Raphael is a talented guy who can play in central midfield or on the left wing, and who has also played in defense," Chivas USA coach Preki said.

Wicky joins Chivas USA from FC Sion in his native Switzerland. He spent six seasons in the German Bundesliga with Hamburg SV.
