Chivas fires John Van't Schip, hires Benjamin Galindo

John Van’t Schip was fired as coach of Chivas de Guadalajara, the club announced on Thursday.

With just four days remaining until the beginning of the Liga MX Clausura 2013, the Dutchman will be replaced by former Santos coach Benjamin Galindo.

Van’t Schip’s position with Chivas had been in jeopardy since the firing of special adviser Johan Cruyff. Cruyff brought in the former Ajax and Genoa player in at the beginning of Apertura 2012, for what was promised to be a long-term project, which in the end lasted less than six months.

Galindo previously led Chivas for three tournaments in the mid-'00s.
