MOST COMMENTED

[MLS] Just four days after it concluded its MLS season, Chivas USA fired head coach Martin Vasquez.  The former U.S. and Mexico international lasted one season during which Chivas USA finished last in the Western Conference with an 8-18-4 record.

Vazquez returned to Chivas USA following the dismissal of Preki after last year's playoffs but he could not maintain the club's postseason record of reaching the final eight every year after its 2005 expansion season.

The 2010 season ended Saturday with a 4-1 loss at home to Chicago.

Vasquez  previously served as an assistant coach at the club from 2005-2007. In 2008-09, he was an assistant to Juergen Klinsmann at Bayern Munich in Germany.
 
“This was a difficult decision for our organization to make,” said Chivas USA Vice President of Soccer Operations Stephen Hamilton in a statement. “Everyone at Chivas USA has a great deal of respect for Martin, both as a person and a coach. Unfortunately, after this difficult season came to a close, we decided to move in a different direction. We all wish Martin the very best in the future.”

    The next thing that needs to be done, if the ownership is smart, rehire Preki and spend some $$ on quality players to replace Bornstein, Kledjstan, Galindo, Marsch, Talley, etc. that they have lost, a DP or two wouldn't hurt either uless they want to remain perpetually as the Galaxy's doormat.
