The 2nd player protected by Union S.C. in 2018 to play along side Carlos Vela will be Carlos Rivas. The active player has had a history of not finishing his chances, but will be in a new environment and coached by Jesse Marsch, so the upside potential is there.

Rivas was signed as a Retention Player.

The 23 year old had 5 goals and 13 assists in his last 42 starts playing 4131 minutes.

It was no surprise that Union S.C. would sign Carlos Vela to a Designated Player contract in 2018 when the club held a press conference today to make the announcement.

Union S.C. was ranked 7th in offense out of 10 clubs in 2017 and is hoping to improve on that.

Vela, age 28, has scored 72 goals in 200 matches in the Spanish top division.
