Life is hard in any continent of the world for a soccer coach if results do not meet the board’s expectations. Chivas de Guadalajara’s coach Victor Manuel Vucetich is no exception to this. The 65-year-old has a big background winning three Concacaf Champions Leagues with Monterrey but still, he is in serious trouble.
Chivas de Guadalajara has had a very tough start on the Guad1anes tournament after drawing the first two games against Puebla and Toluca by 1-1, and then losing 3-1 to Atlético San Luis and 2-1 against Juarez. The team is now in 16th position out of 18 participants, with just two pounts out of 12.
Now, Vucetich has received a clear message: win or go home. According to Mexico’s top newspaper El Universal, Chivas’ board has told him he will be removed from his position in case the team does not win the next match. The big problem is that in the upcoming game, Chivas is facing reigning champions León.
The board has already appointed former Inter Miami coach Diego Alonso. The Uruguayan is really liked by Chivas’ sporting director Ricardo Peláez, and is allegedly already talking to club’s owner Amaury Vergara to convince him.
