Even if things are returning to the right path for Chivas in the final part of Clausura 2022, as they’ve won their last three games and finally are in the top part of the Liga MX table thanks to the unbeaten streak of Ricardo Cadena, they still have a long way to go before leaving the crises they currently face.
More Chivas news:
With the nine points acquired in the past three games and the improvement that El Rebaño players have showed since Marcelo Michel Leaño was sacked from his position, Chivas has momentarily left behind the results crisis.
They now have the same number of victories with Cadena on the dugout as the ones that they had with Michel Leaño, although it took 10 games less for the former CD Tapatío coach to tie Michel Leaño, which explains why he’s no longer coaching El Rebaño.
With one game left on the regular season, it will be enough for them to make it into Liguilla and have the home advantage in Repechaje. But once the season is over, they will have to think what they will do with players like Alexis Vega, who will be free to start negotiating with any team.
They already chose their successor
It’s no lie to say that Alexis Vega is the best player in Chivas’s roster, something that he doesn’t get tired of proving game after game, even on the weakest passages of El Rebaño, which is why he hasn’t considered negotiating his renewal.
In the eventual case of his departure, Amaury Vergara and Ricardo Peláez already know what they will do to fill the spot that Vega leaves, as they already have given Sebastián Pérez Bouquet the opportunity of forming part of the first team.
Pérez Bouquet is one of the most talented players that Chivas academy has produced in recent years, which is why at his young age he is a regular in El Rebaño’s games and if Vega leaves, Pérez Bouquet not only will take his place, but Chivas’s will start building a team around him.
When did FC Barcelona inquired about Pérez Bouquet?
When the 18-year-old offensive midfielder was playing in the U-15 category, during a tournament where both ChivasandFC Barcelona participated in, the Chivas player got to display his talent against the Blaugranas, who have followed him ever since, although they asked about him during that tournament.
