Chivas USA: Galindo gone, Bornstein back

Chivas USA striker Maykel Galindo has successfully undergone sports hernia surgery and is expected to be out of action for six weeks. The surgery was performed yesterday by Dr. Richard Cattey at St. Mary's Ozaukee Hospital in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

A native of Villa Clara, Cuba, Galindo enjoyed a breakout first season in Major League Soccer in 2007, scoring 12 goals and adding five assists in 28 regular season games for Chivas USA, placing himself as the club's leading scorer.

In other news, Chivas USA announced today that defender Jonathan Bornstein is expected back by early February following successful arthroscopic ankle surgery performed in late December. Bornstein's surgery, which removed scar tissue from the fullback's left ankle, was performed on Dec. 24 in Santa Monica, Calif. by Chivas USA team doctors Michael Gerhardt and Eric Giza.

Chivas USA opens camp in late January ahead of its fourth MLS campaign. The Red-and-White kick off their 2008 MLS season on March 30 at FC Dallas before playing their 2008 Home Opener against fellow Class of '05 expansion side Real Salt Lake on Saturday, April 5 at The Home Depot Center.
