Guadalajara sacks Benjamin Galindo

GUADALAJARA – Chivas Guadalajara on Sunday sacked coach Benjamín Galindo five games into the season after losing a home match to Puebla, 4-2. Team sporting director Dennis Te Kloese made the announcement after the match and said Galindo’s replacement would be named Monday.

“Today’s result has been very negative for those who want to see the team do well,” said Te Kloese of the team, which is 1-1-3 and sits in 15th place in the Mexican league. “This was a tough moment but in the end we opted that Benjamin Galindo should no longer be the Chivas coach for the moment and tomorrow we will give more information as to who will take charge of the team and in what way. Obviously, we have upcoming matches, Tuesday in the Cup (vs. Dorados) and Friday in the league (vs. Queretaro).”

The team’s stellar preseason record created great expectations. Galindo was named in January before the 2013 season start, replacing John Van’t Schip. The Dutch coach was sacked after a lackluster season that saw Chivas finish 17th in the regular season.
