SAN JOSE, Calif. – The San Jose Earthquakes announced today that midfielder Eduardo ‘Chofis’ Lopez has concluded his 18-month loan with San Jose and will now return to Chivas de Guadalajara.

“We would like to thank Chofis for his contributions over the past year and a half,” said Earthquakes General Manager Chris Leitch. “He had a very successful 2021 season and was an important player for us, but unfortunately injuries have prevented him from making a similar impact in 2022. We appreciate all his hard work and wish him the best of luck moving forward.”

Chofis, 27, joined the Quakes on a year-long loan ahead of the 2021 MLS season before his loan was extended through June 2022. He finished his time in San Jose with 13 goals and four assists in 36 appearances, including one goal in four appearances this season.
