BRIAN SCIARETTA - Thursday, June 7, 2012
It was announced today that American defender Johanthan Bornstein will go on loan from Tigres to Atlante in the Mexican Primera.
Bornstein, 27, struggled for playing time last season with Tigres but will hope to break into an Atlante team that finished in 14th place in the Clausura in the 18 team league.
The move to Tigres in 2011 came on the heels of a solid MLS career with Chivas USA where he played from 2006-2010.
Bornstein used to a regular with the US national team and put on a strong performance at left back against Algeria at the 2010 World Cup in a game the Americans won 1-0.
Since Jurgen Klinsmann was hired in August 2011, Bornstein has fallen out of the national team picture.
