The new technical director of the Chivas de Guadalajara would not have in his plans Miguel Jimenez, owner of the Sacred Flock in the Apertura 2023. His place will be taken by Oscar Whalley

Fernando Gago seeks to implement drastic changes upon his arrival at Chivas de Guadalajara. Just over 24 hours have passed since his official appointment and the Argentine technical director has begun to give signs of what the Sacred Flock will be for 2024 and the changes he hopes to make and one of those will be in the goal.

According to a report by TUDN journalist, Karina Herrera, Miguel “Wacho” Jimenez does not factor into Fernando Gago's plans for the Clausura 2024 tournament, a decision that would make the Guadalajara team's board headed by Spaniard Fernando Hierro look for a new team for the 29-year-old goalkeeper.

“Wacho” Jimenez was responsible for being under the three sticks of the Sacred Flock during the tournament that recently ended with the coronation of the Águilas del América. The Mexican goalkeeper was the undisputed starter for the Serbian Veljko Paunovic, who left the team after the elimination at the hands of the UNAM Pumas in the quarterfinals.

Jimenez, who is in his third stage with the Chivas de Guadalajara, a team with which he has played for almost his entire career, played a total of 18 games for Chivas this season, while Jesús Rangel stood between the three sticks on two occasions. For his part, Óscar Whalley, did not count for Paunovic at any time.

And that is precisely what will change under the command of Fernando Gago. According to Herrera, in the first instance the goal during the Argentine coach's cycle would be for Whalley, while it is expected that the second goalkeeper position will be disputed between Rangel and Eduardo García, who joins the team in the preseason.

Oscar Whalley, 29, He arrived at the Sacred Flock at the beginning of the season from CD Lugo of the third division of Spain and although he was in the 2023 Clausura and Apertura tournament, the Spanish goalkeeper has not yet been able to make his debut in Mexican soccer. We will have to wait for him to finish the Chivas preseason to know if he finally ends up convincing as a starter.

Work began

After the break following the elimination in the quarterfinals of the Apertura 2023 tournament in the first days of this month, The Chivas of Guadalajara have already started their preseason and this Friday the second day of work took place at the Valle Verde facilities, where Fernando Gago's coaching staff begins to shape what will be his cycle at the head of the Sacred Flock.

Once the physical tests were carried out on the players, the medical and clinical examinations were carried out at the same time that the second work session was carried out on the playing field under the gaze of the Argentine strategist who was It will debut in Clausura 2024 on January 13 at home against Santos Laguna.
