After three weeks in the Guard1anes 2020 tournament and with very poor results on the field, Chivas decided to fire Tena before the things go from bad to worst.
After the 1-0 loss versus Puebla at home for the Jornada 3 of Guard1anes 2020 tournament and no wins in the past three weeks, it came to no one’s surprise on Sunday morning that Chivas announced they would no longer need Luis Fernando Tena’s services moving forward in the tournament. Usually, Chivas don’t take quick action with poor results on the field and stick to their coach throughout the Liga MX tournaments confiding in their plans but certainly, enough has been enough. With also zero goals and being the only team in the tournament with that stat, it makes perfect sense on why Chivas needs a makeover, again.
Chivas took to their social media and announced that they will no longer have Luis Fernando Tena services and will move forward with their institutional elements of the club being solely in charge of the team in their next few matches as El Rebaño searches for a new coach to turn the team around after 3 weeks of poor results:
Luis Tena who took over the team in the Apertura 2019 having his first loss in the Clasico Nacional in a one-sided game favoring America with a 4-1 that quickly demonstrated that Tena probably. wasn’t the right candidate for the team and as the months passed it was noticeable. Although Tena did not qualify his team to the Liguilla in the Apertura 2019, things took a slight turn in Clausura 2020 as the team finished in the 5th place position after 10 games but sadly the tournament had a premature stop due to the worldwide pandemic of the COVID-19.
Even during the Copa GNP where Chivas would go onto lose tin the final hey didn’t look bad and played amazing on the offensive part of the ball. The trouble came when players important to the club were exposed to COVID-19 as Fernando Beltran, Alexis Vega, Ronaldo Cisneros, and Uriel Antuna. The coach himself even having it. It led to disastrous results as a 0-0 draw against Leon and a 2-0 loss versus Santos and now most recently the 1-0 loss versus Puebla, many fans called for a change in the tactical side of the team, and well their wishes were granted.
As of now, many names are thrown out to take over for Chivas, names like Javier Aguirre, Victor Manuel Vucetich, and even the return of Matias Almeyda are called out but it will all be a mystery for the next few weeks. Truthfully, this has been a fiasco for Chivas for the last three years, as they have had more coaches then reaching the Liguilla in the Liga MX since 2017.
Something must be done, and quickly!
