Chivas de Guadalajara secured their qualification for the Liga MX playoffs with their tight victory over Mazatlán FC. The team led by Marcelo Michel Leaño managed to get among the twelve best teams in the tournament and will be able to find a place in the league. However, the playoff pass does not erase the disastrous season of the Sacred Rebaño, much less disguise the crisis that the rojiblanca institution is experiencing.
The Guadalajara board made a change at the helm on matchday 9 of the Grita México 2021 tournament and dispensed with the services of Víctor Manuel Vucetich. The team was under the command of Marcelo Michel Leaño, who despite his statements and effort, has not been able to get the team out of the pothole it is going through.
Under the 34-year-old coach, Chivas had three draws, three losses and two wins. The results and the performance of the rojiblanco team under the leadership of Leaño has not lived up to expectations. For this reason, its continuity for the next semester raised more than one eyebrow.
The team under Leaño’s orders has a worse percentage of effectiveness than with Víctor Manuel Vucetich, his performance has not been better than with ‘King Midas’ and he got into a last minute playoff and in one of the worst positions. Beyond what Chivas can do at this stage, the reality is that the team is facing a sports and institutional crisis.
Chivas did not get his pass to the playoffs because of his performance on the court, but because of the facilities provided by the competition system and with a series of controversial decisions in the duel against Mazatlán FC. The outlook in the short and medium term is not encouraging for the Sacred Herd.
Chivas is in the playoffs, but this does not disguise or reduce their crisis
