Paid Their Dues: Gabe Farfan Loaned to Liga MX Side Jaguares

USA TODAY Sports

Farfan joins Chiapas on a six month loan.

Gabriel Farfan has been loaned to Liga MX side Chiapas Fútbol Club for six months, according to MLS reports. The ex-Union player was traded to Chivas USA last year for allocation money and Chivas' first round pick in the 2014 MLS SuperDraft (which was later traded to D.C. United to land Andre Blake). Farfan is no stranger to Liga MX, having spent time in Club América's system before being signed by Philadelphia in 2011. Chiapas, better known in Mexico as Jaguares, is currently tied for third in the Clausura (Spring Season) with four other clubs and is behind league leaders Cruz Azul (where Gabe's brother Michael plays) by 6 points.

It's worth noting that Michael hasn't played yet for Cruz Azul's first team, and that his only action thus far has come with La Maquina's under-20 team yesterday. Cruz Azul is much deeper at midfield than Jaguares, so it will be interesting to see which Farfan features first in Liga MX. Unfortunately, Cruz Azul already played Jaguares in the Clausura back on January 18, so the prospect of Farfan vs. Farfan will have to wait until either an encounter in the Copa MX (Mexico's Open Cup competition) or in the Liguilla (playoff bracket).
