Another disappointing tournament for Chivas ended as they were eliminated by Atlas over the weekend. Los Rojiblancos saw their season come to an end after losing 3-2 on aggregate in the quarter-finals to extend their wait for a title.

Chivas struggles to be competitive

Chivas has the biggest fan-base in Mexican soccer and they are always expected to make a run to win the Liga MX title. However, the Guadalajara-based team has struggled to be competitive since 2017, when they won their twelfth trophy under manager Matías Almeyda.

The Argentine coach left Guadalajara in 2018 and since then the team has struggled to find a replacement capable of building a side to compete with the best teams in the league. Six different head coaches have tried to bring glory to Chivas since the departure of Almeyda, but they have all fallen short.

Now the big question is whether Ricardo Cadena, who took over the job after Marcelo Michel Leaño was fired in mid-tournament, will continue at the helm of the team for the 2022 Apertura campaign. Cadena has managed Chivas for seven games and he has a record of five wins, one draw and one defeat.
