FC Dallas trades Marvin Chavez to San Jose

FC Dallas have traded star winger Marvin Chavez to the San Jose Earthquakes for allocation money. The speedy Chávez played a vital part in FC Dallas' run to MLS Cup in 2010, when he appeared in 16 regular-season games and all four in the playoffs. He assisted on FCD’s only goal in a 2-1 loss to the Colorado Rapids in MLS Cup, scorching a cross to the foot of David Ferreira to put FCD on the board in the 35th minute.

This year Chavez enjoyed a breakout season as he started 30 games notching six goals and four assists while helping lead FCD to the postseason for the second consecutive year. He also scored the decisive goal in FCD's historic 1-0 victory at Pumas UNAM in the group stage of the CONCACAF Champions League back in August, the first-ever victory by an MLS side in Mexico.

"Marvin is one of the most exciting players in MLS," San Jose GM John Doyle said in a statement. "I can’t wait to see him in an Earthquakes uniform."

FC Dallas, meanwhile, have already shipped midfielder/defender Jeremy Hall to Toronto FC this offseason, and head coach Schellas Hyndman told MLSsoccer.com last week they’ll likely look elsewhere for help up top instead of resigning striker Maicon Santos for 2012.
Marvin was always an outstanding player and we certainly will miss him, but this move allows us to better balance our team,” Hyndman said in a statement on Friday.

“We are losing a solid player, but it’s for the overall benefit of the team. We can strengthen our team in both our back line as well as up front where we really missed having that player who could finish the plays we generated up front last season.”
