Report: Chivas coach says Joseph will be dealt

Don't expect Grenada international midfielder Shalrie Joseph to be with Chivas USA when i opens its Major League Soccer season in March.

Jose Luis "Chelis" Sanchez Sola said on Wednesday that Joseph will not play a role with the team this season.

“He’s a great player, but he is not in my plans,” Sanchez Sola told

Joseph, a former Brooklyn, N.Y. resident and St. John's University standout, is considered one of the best holding/defensive midfielders in the 17-year history of Major League Soccer.

Obtained in a trade with the New England Revolution last season, the four-time MLS Best XI selection has not trained with the team during the pre-season. He did report to camp last week.

“He showed up the first day with an injury and after that has not returned,” Sanchez Sola said. “Maybe he’s sick, maybe he’s injured, I don’t know what’s going on with him.”

Dealing the 34-year-old Joseph to another team might be difficult because of his huge salary. Last year Joseph earned a base salary of $495,000 and a guaranteed salary of $554,333.33.

“Management knows he’s not in my plans,” Sanchez Sola was quoted by “Hopefully he’ll be able to play with another team.”

Joseph forged his reputation, playing with the Revs for a decade. He has made 30 international appearances for Grenada, scoring three goals.
