De la Torre's return fails to inspire as Chivas' rot continues

Jose Manuel 'Chepo' de la Torre wasn't able to inspire Chivas to a win in his first match back in charge.

GUADALAJARA, Mexico -- Chivas coach Jose Manuel "Chepo" de la Torre said in the week that there is no magic wand that can be waved for the club's troubles to simply disappear, but he would've hoped for more from his first match back in charge than what he saw in Saturday's 2-1 loss against Leon.

Chivas were no better than they had been under previous coach Carlos Bustos and there was very little to suggest the Mexican-only institution will be able to pull away from relegation with any ease. The...

"Chepo" de la Torre begins second stint at Chivas vs. Leon

In his second stint as coach at the club, Chepo de la Torre has been tasked with helping Chivas avoid relegation.
In his second stint as coach at the club, Chepo de la Torre has been tasked with helping Chivas avoid relegation.

GUADALAJARA, Mexico -- A new era for Chivas begins on Saturday with a trip to Leon to face the reigning Liga MX champion.

Since the 1-0 loss against local rival Atlas two weeks ago, much has changed.

Jose Manuel "Chepo" de la Torre has returned as coach to the club where he made his name in the Apertura 2006, when Chivas lifted their 11th and last trophy.

There is a sense that owner Jorge Vergara has finally turned to the kind of trusted figure that he should've gone to long ago, certainly...

Erick "El Cubo" Torres facing a tough decision

After experiencing success in MLS at Chivas USA, a return to Liga MX may not be in Erick Torres' best interest.
After experiencing success in MLS at Chivas USA, a return to Liga MX may not be in Erick Torres' best interest.

"What would you do?" Erick "El Cubo" Torres asked me a few weeks ago when we ran into each other after an interview on the program "Nación ESPN." The question was posed right in the middle of a cut, when the studio lights were down and people were speaking in hushed tones.

On Sunday, Torres scored his first goal on the senior Mexican national team and is wrapping up a club season in the United States, where he has once again been a regular scorer and the great player that he once seemed destined...

Chivas and Chepo: A partnership forged out of urgency

"Chepo" de la Torre returns to managing 13 months after being fired as Mexico coach.

It seems like mutual necessity, an opportunity for both, an attraction that for the two may end in life or death but was always worth another try.

José Manuel "Chepo" de la Torre did what anyone else would have done after a colossal failure: get back to basics, back to your roots, back to the heat and familiar sounds of the home where it all began. And Chivas did what any club would do when urgency and desperation are knocking at your door: play it safe, which fosters trust, confidence and security.

"Chepo"...

Jose Manuel de la Torre returns as Chivas look to avoid relegation

Jose Manuel 'Chepo' de la Torre was presented to the media on Tuesday.

Can a coaching appointment smack of desperation and yet be positive at the same time?

Former Mexico national team coach Jose Manuel 'Chepo' de la Torre's return to soccer management at his former club Chivas Guadalajara on Tuesday certainly seems to have a heavy dose of both sentiments.

On the positive side, the De la Torre brothers -- with Nestor named the new club president last Friday -- are back, uniting the partnership that brought Chivas their last league title in 2006 and the only major trophy...
