Ambriz deposed at Guadalajara; Cruyff to pick new coach

MOST COMMENTED

Former Mexican international Ignacio Ambriz has resigned as coach of Guadalajara. His departure came shortly after a committee headed by former Barcelona coach and Dutch star Johan Cruyff declined to support him. Cruyff was hired in late February as an adviser at the club, which had lost 13 straight matches when he joined.

Club officials said Cruyff and his committee had recommended that Ambriz stay only until the end of the season. Ambriz took over the struggling club in January from Fernando Quirarte, but has been unable to turn around its fortunes. Guadalajara was beaten 5-0 by Deportivo Quito on Tuesday in the Copa Libertadores and though it has won more league titles than any other Mexican club will miss the playoffs this season.

The club said Alberto Coyote, a former player, will take over as the interim coach and the new coach will be picked by Cruyff.

Guadalajara is the only Mexican team that plays only with Mexican players. In recent seasons the club has declined to sign new players, giving youngsters from its youth system a chance instead.
