The LA Galaxy
announced today that the club has
traded forward Alan Gordon to Chivas
USA in exchange for allocation
money.

Gordon
entered the season as the Galaxy’s longest-tenured player, having made his debut
for the club in 2004. In seven years with the club, Gordon had 16 goals and 12
assists in 99 regular season games, while also appearing in nine postseason
games, including MLS Cup 2005 in Frisco, Texas,
when the Galaxy won their second league championship. This season, Gordon had
one goal in 12 regular season games, while also appearing in both of the club’s
U.S. Open Cup and CONCACAF Champions League matches.

The
28-year-old graduate was selected by the Galaxy in the sixth round of the 2004
MLS SuperDraft out of Oregon State
University. He made his
debut for the club in a 0-0 draw with San Jose on September 25 of that year. Gordon
had his best season with the club in 2008 when he set career-highs with five
goals and seven assists in 26 games with the
Galaxy.
