Chivas USA keep coach

Hans Westerhof (pictured), coach of Chivas USA (otherwise known as the worst team in the MLS), will get to keep his job, but he will give up his title of director of football for Chivas Rayadas de Guadalajara, Saprissa of Costa Rica and Chivas USA.

"Like I told you before, we had to make a decision to either look for a new coach here (Chivas USA) or look for a new director of football," Westerhof said.

"We agreed that we believed in this project so we decided the most important thing right now is to continue to work here."

Not to long ago, Bruce Arena said that only coaches get fired in the MLS. Here we have the coach of a 4-22-6 team staying on to try and regroup, so I'm guessing the Bruce is happy about this.

It was also announced that Francisco "Paco" Palencia will stay will Chivas USA and not return to Mexico as rumored. "Paco is here to stay. There's always a possibility for change, but in this case it's impossible," Westerhof said.

Other players will need to wait a few weeks to find out if they are staying or not.
