Chivas USA defender Claudio Suarez has apologized to the club with regards to his comments when it looked like he would leave.

"I made a mistake in not showing the club respect. I felt like that, the fact that Panchito (Mendoza) left the club and the state of my own negotiations I felt the team was changing its identity," Suarez said in a press conference at his team's opening 2009 game. "But in the end the proof is on the field, with the signings of Eduardo Lillingston and Mariano Trujillo. I made a mistake in having made those comments."

"I have a greater responsibility now," he continued. "After everything that happened, I have to prove my worth and show that I'm physically capable of playing."
