Chivas puts Fabian up for sale

The club has decided to part ways with the gold medal winner after he failed to meet its lofty expectations.

Chivas forward and Olympic gold medal winner Marco Fabian was named on the club’s transfer list Wednesday.

The 24-year-old Mexico international has endured a difficult time since starring at London 2012, failing to recapture the kind of form that reportedly had European clubs inquiring about him.

Fabian has made more headlines recently for his off-the-field activities, with the player publically apologizing to fans in a press conference on Sept. 5, after he turned down a move to a Qatari club, and stating he would redouble his efforts to bring Chivas success.

Widespread reports in the Mexican press suggest Club Tijuana, Club Leon, Monterrey and Tigres could be potential destinations for the playmaker, who first made a name for himself outside Mexico with two stunning goals for Chivas against Barcelona in a friendly in August 2011.

US-born left back Miguel Ponce, goalkeeper Luis Michel and promising youngster Giovani Casillas were also made available for transfer, but it was Fabian’s name that stood out.

The players could be used in exchanges with other teams to rejuvenate a squad that finished 16th in the Apertura 2013 regular season and is close to being dragged into the relegation race.
