San Jose Earthquakes interim head coach Alex Covelo labeled Eduardo ‘Chofis’ Lopez as ‘inconsistent’ after his recent involvement with the team. 

The player first arrived to Major League Soccer in January 2021, joining the Earthquakes on loan from Chivas de Guadalajara. The team extended Chofis’ stay in December, renewing his contract through June 2022. 

While Covelo praised the player, it’s no secret his performances have not been up to par in 2022. Chofis has managed one goal in four games this season, as he spends the majority of time on the sidelines nursing a previous injury. 

“With Eduardo it has been complicated because he has a long injury, there has to be rehabilitation, then he goes into training and when he began to get in shape he felt a little pain in the same area and that is why it has been a little inconsistent,” the manager told TUDN.  

Chofis has missed 11 games overall, 10 due to injury and one caused by a sudden relapse. But given his history with the team, the interim manager is reluctant to let the player go.
