Briseño hasn’t helped El Rebaño at all.

He’s been involved in several scandals.

With the departure of Marcelo Michel Leaño after the poor results that Chivas had during his stint, El Rebaño Sagrado has started a cleaning of the locker room, as they know that they will have to rebuilt it to become contenders for Liga MX again.

Amaury Vergara finally understood that maintaining Michel Leaño was unsustainable given the weak performances that El Rebaño Sagrado had week after week, especially since they didn’t know how to close the game, something that costed them several points.

Michel Leaño coached Chivas for 22 games, with an efficiency percentage of 36.37% thanks to the five victories he had during his stint, as well as the nine draws and eight defeats. In total, Marcelo Michel Leaño earned 24 points out of the 66 he disputed.

And now that he’s gone, the next step for the rebuilding of the team is to start parting ways with the players that have caused problems in the locker room, as well as the ones that haven’t contributed to improve the overall performances.

Antonio Briseño is the first player out of Chivas.

It’s yet to be seen who is the coach that arrives in Chivas once Clausura 2022 is over, although the strongest candidate is Matías Almeyda, who already coached El Rebaño once and has become a free agent this week after resigning from San José Earthquakes.

If he ends up arriving at Chivas, a team he follows closely, one of his first decisions will be to find a new team for Antonio “Pollo” Briseño, who has been a troublemaker for Chivas in the past few years, as he’s been involved in several discussions with his teammates, including the last one with César Huerta at the end of the game against Toluca.

Briseño has one year left on his contract and could be use as a trade offer to acquire his replacement: Israel Reyes, who has stood out with Club Puebla in the last couple seasons and is followed by Club América, who have tried to acquire him in the past.

Israel Reyes’ market value

According to Transfermarkt, the 21-year-old defender’s market value is set at $4 million, a sum that has increased exponentially in the past months, but that is still affordable for both teams, although Chivas will have to offer something else given that they only play with Mexican players.
