The defeat that Chivas suffered on Sunday against América in the 'Clásico Nacional' shook key positions in the leadership of the 'Rebaño Sagrado'. However, the sports management headed by Ricardo Peláez will remain in office, as well as technical director Víctor Manuel Vucetich despite the 0-3 they received at home against the 'Águilas'.
Chivas is 13th in the standings with just twelve units and only two victories so far in the tournament. At a press conference from the Guadalajara facilities, Peláez accepted that the campaign has fallen short of expectations:“It is to show our face, to have a little bit of shame, to have a little mother, after the shameful performance and what we have been dragging throughout the tournament".
"We have not been able to be a competitive team of the size that the fans demand. I am not going to throw in the towel, there is my resignation, I am not going to demand a settlement, the president knows it and that is enough for me, the day I have to leave, I have to leave without charging a penny", the Chivas manager stated.
Ricardo Peláez assured that each one of the people who works in the rojiblanca institution is in constant evaluation, and that once Chivas' participation in the tournament ends, determinations will be made. For now, he gave Vucetich a vote of confidence to stay at the head of the team.
Chivas will not have match of matchday 12 this weekend because the visit to Monterrey was rescheduled due to the participation of 6 players in the Guadalajara Pre-Olympic. Guadalajara's next match will be against Santos on April 4 as part of date 13. Ricardo Peláez announced that Cristian Calderón only had a blow to the foot in the final part of the match against América, thus ruling out a fracture of the fifth metatarsal that was feared at first.
