Philadelphia Union manager John Hackworth is disappointed to lose Michael Farfan.

Farfan has moved to Cruz Azul of Mexico.

"Michael and I are pretty close," Hackworth told "This was hard for me because I didn't want to give up Michael. But the financial situation that was offered to us, plus the fact that this was something Michael was definitely excited about it, made this an opportunity that worked out for both of us."
