The crisis in Chivas is still going on, as not only the results haven’t been favorable for El Rebaño Sagrado, but now, there’s a group of players that grew tired of Marcelo Michel Leaño and want to leave Guadalajara once Clausura 2022 is over.

It’s no lie to say that since Amaury Vergara became the owner, Chivas haven’t been a contender in Liga MX, as they have reached the semifinals in just one season. But when he decided to part ways with Victor Manuel Vucetich to impose Michel Leaño as El Rebaño’s coach, things have been worse than ever.
So far, Marcelo Michel Leaño has coached 20 games since he arrived at Chivas’ dugout for the round 11 of Apertura 2021. From those 20 games, El Rebaño Sagrado has won just five of them and in total, they’ve managed to earn only 23 points out of the 60 available.
The players know that they don’t have a chance of improving their game and having better opportunities if they stay in Chivas, which is why they’re considering leaving El Rebaño as free agents once the season is over.
They don’t have plans of renewing with Chivas
It’s been rumored for a while that Alexis Vega is living his last months as a Chivas player, and even was in negotiations with CF Monterrey to arrive for Clausura 2022, something that didn’t happen but shows that he’s ready to leave El Rebaño.
Alongside him, Raúl Gudiño has decided that it’s time to move on, especially since they benched him once he said he wasn’t sure if he wanted to renew with them, as his contract expires at the end of season. Now it’s clear that the best thing for him would be a fresh start elsewhere.
If that wasn’t enough, Hiram Mier and Jesús Angulo are also part of the list of players that haven’t renewed their contract and even if they are in negotiations with Chivas, they are also exploring other possibilities where they could keep growing away from El Rebaño.
Why hasn’t Vega renewed with Chivas?
Alexis Vega has said in the past that he likes being a Chivas player, but he also knows that he is one of the best players in El Rebaño’s roster and he should be paid accordingly. So far, the negotiations haven’t transcended because Vega is asking for a salary three times what he now earns, something that Chivas can’t afford.
