The train wreck that is Chivas USA continues to move forward.

Chivas USA announced late Wednesday that the club has mutually agreed to part ways with Head Coach José Luis Sánchez Solá, “Chelís”, due to the team’s poor performance on the field.

Chelís has earned a record of 3-7-2, amasing a total of 11 points in 12 games.

José Luis Real Casillas, who currently acts as Sporting Development Director at Chivas Guadalajara, will take over Chivas USA as its head coach.

The release sent out by Chivas USA stated that Chelis was given a lot of talent to work with but the results didn’t add up.

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.

But in the end, he was left with the cheapest team in MLS, blaming part of the club’s budget problems on having to eat some of the salaries of the players it unloaded.

This comes a day after the club was being sued by two former coaches.
