BRIAN SCIARETTA - Monday, January 14, 2013
With his contract last year to Sport Huancayo ending last year, American midfielder Diego Chavarri has signed with Union Comercio, also of the Peruvian Primera.

Two years ago, Chavarri was a rising star with Sporting Cristal but a series of injuries has seen him struggle to get settled at a club.

Last year he began the year with Cobresol but he left the club due to financial difficulties. He ended up signing for the rest of the season in Peru with Huancayo but struggled again with injuries which limited his playing time.. Huancayo ended the 2012 season finishing in 10th place in the Primera.

"I signed with Union Comercio for all of 2013," Chavarri told YA

Union Comercio is based in the city of Nueva Cajamarca in the northern district of St. Martin. Last season they finished in 12th place in the 16 team Primera.

Chavarri, 23, was born in the borough of Queens in New York City but grew up in Peru where his parents are from. He has frequently said that he would prefer to represent the United States. Last year he was invited to a US U-23 camp by coach Caleb Porter but was unable to attend because of injuries.

Union Comercio will open their Peruvian Primera season on February 9 against Jose Galvez at home in Estadio Municipal Carlos Vidaurre García.
