With two games left in the season, Carlos Poblete will replace Daniel Guzman as coach of Puebla.Puebla has joined Pumas in switching coaches a second time during the course of the 2012 Apertura tournament, handing Daniel Guzman his walking papers on Tuesday.
The veteran coach had managed La Franja only since the sixth match of the tournament, compiling a record of three wins, five losses, and two ties. He will be succeeded Carlos Poblete, who was introduced Tuesday afternoon.
“The main reason is that I have some personal commitments I need to attend to in Guadalajara,” Guzman told mediotiempo.com. “I only came for Puebla.
“Also, we sat down to analyze the objectives for the two games remaining in the tournament, and we couldn’t come to an agreement on objectives for those two games and the next tournament.”
Guzman has coached in various places around Mexico since ending a long playing career in 1999, but his most successful stints have been with Santos and Tigres, where he last coached in 2010.
He leaves Puebla in 16th position on 12 points, out of the running for a Liguilla spot with two matches to play.
