Jose Luis Sanchez Sola, also known as "El Chelis," has submitted his resignation as coach of Puebla FC after his team lost to Pumas UNAM.

The reason for his resignation was his disagreement with the new owner Ricardo Henaine.

Mr. Sanchez declared that he could not work with a person he "hates and distrusts". He is afraid that feelings such as these can go a long way, leaving him with only one option: resigning

The outgoing Pueblas FC coach declared that he does not forgive Mr. Henaine for the way he treated previous owner Francisco Bernat.

He called Mr. Henaine a coward and a back stabber who does not have the guts to do his "evil work" in public.

The players of Puebla FC support the decision of Jose Luis Sanchez Sola to resign.  Goalie, Alexander Alvarez declared that the internal strife affected the recent performance of the team.

Ricardo Henaine responded to the declarations of Sanchez Sola by saying that if he wants to leave, the door is wide open and that his services are not needed.

Ricardo Henaine is the new owner of Puebla FC after the previous owner, Francisco Bernat sold his rights of ownership after being freed from prison.

Francisco Bernat was recently arrested for fraud and subsequently jailed. The condition for his freedom was to resign ownership of Puebla.

It remains to be seen if this drama will affect Puebla in its future games for 2010-2011.
