Chivas fires Johan Cruyff as adviser

Johan Cruyff has been sacked as adviser by Mexican outfit Chivas just nine months after being hired.

The former Barcelona coach was hired nine months ago to help turn around the club's flagging fortunes but a first-round play-off exit this season does not appear to have impressed the club's owners.

An official statement read: "The club has decided to terminate the services and consultancy with the company of Mr Johan Cruyff.

"This is because of not meeting the outcomes and objectives that have been established since the beginning of the contractual relationship.

"The coaching staff will not be affected, therefore technical director, trainer and technical assistants will continue to work with the club.

"The club thank Mr Johan Cruyff for the support and collaboration he has provided."
