The Chivas boss would love to be given more time to turn the club's fortunes around.Five consecutive defeats for Chivas and some lackluster displays have left coach Benjamin Galindo’s job anything but secure, although the former Mexico international is desperate for a chance to turn the club’s fortunes around.
“I really feel bad for not getting good results, but I’m not complaining, I worked to the maximum with the squad,” stated Galindo after the 2-1 home defeat to Queretaro on Sunday. “What I’m asking for is one more opportunity.”
Sunday’s loss against a side already relegated and which played the majority of the game with 10 men marked a new low point this season for Guadalajara and Galindo was quick to lay the blame partially with the players’ attitude.
“You can win, lose or draw, but what you can’t do is stop fighting,” he said.
Early indications from sporting president Dennis te Kloese suggest that Galindo will be given more time.
“Benjamin did what he could with what he had,” stated the Dutchman on Sunday. “I think we have to evaluate the tournament, not just the last games. In the case of Benjamin, I think he deserves another opportunity to go to the war with better arms.”
Te Kloese also hinted that the club is likely to be a big mover in this summer’s transfer market after failing to reach the playoffs.
“We will stop talking and sending out messages, now we’re going to take action,” said te Kloese. “For big problems, there will be strong remedies.”
