Chivas USA and Chelís Call it Quits
MLS, Major League Soccer, Chivas USA club and headcoach José Luis Sánchez Solá (Chelís) have “mutually agreed to part ways…”.
José Luis Sánchez Solá or “Chelís” never really made much on an impact. Chivas made statement in which the said, “Since his hiring, Sánchez Solá had at his disposal a competitive team with the institutional premise of a formal interaction, based in communication in which the club listened to his petitions to incorporate players approved by him. However, he was not able to reflect it with results. While serving as Chivas USA Head Coach, Sánchez Solá not always followed the patterns of respect and conduct implemented by Major League Soccer, as well as by Chivas USA.”
Chelís’s Chivas USA team was in dead last in the MLS standings with 24 goals against them in just 12 games. High defense-lines and slow reaction seemed to be the style of choice for Chelís.
Chelís has been replaced by José Luis Real, who is the Sporting Development Director over at Chivas Guadalajara. Marco Fabián Vázquez will be assistant coach, currently the technical director for Chivas Guadalajara’s U-20 team.
