Cade Cowell reveals reasons behind move to Chivas


USMNT player Cade Cowell is settling into life in Mexico after joining Chivas from San Jose Earthquakes on January 15. In an interview with The Athletic, the 20-year-old discussed the reasons behind the move to the Mexican club.

“It’s really easy to be comfortable (in San Jose), you know?” said Cowell. “Playing in your hometown for so long, you know everyone at the club. It’s a happy place to be. You’re not uncomfortable. What I really wanted to do was be uncomfortable. When you go to the national team and play against players like (Christian) Pulisic and (Weston) McKennie, I was uncomfortable every day. It brings out the best in you. It’s something you can’t really explain or do until you’re in the situation.

“I was really excited for that — to try something new. New league, new culture, new everything.”

Chivas debut

After joining Chivas for $4 million, Cowell made his debut in the recent 1-0 defeat to Tigres. The exciting forward came off the bench for his new club but was unable to get on the score sheet. Cowell replaced striker José Juan Macías and it didn’t take him long to show glimpses of his quality, going close to scoring with a volley that ended up going just wide, but Tigres held on to all three points thanks to a goal by Sebastián Córdova.

First US player with Chivas

Cowell is the first active US international to play for Chivas, who only field players from Mexico, however, dual-nationals with Mexican citizenship can feature for the club, and the young forward only became a Mexican citizen a couple weeks before his move to Chivas. Fans of Chivas will be looking forward to seeing the best of the USA international this season, as he is expected to make an impact in Guadalajara.
