Real calls for patience as Chivas USA begin rebuilding process

Chivas USA head coach Jose Luis Real says he believes fully in the process and has called for patience as he attempts to get the club out of their current rut.

The Goats ended their 2013 MLS campaign with a disappointing 5-0 home loss to Portland Timbers on the weekend to finish the season with the second worst record in the entire league but Real was remaining positive as he looks to build for the future.

"This is a project, and it's important to say I came here to install a style, and it's a project that normally takes about three years to be fruitful ...," Real said. "It's going to take time. It's a complicated project.

"We know who will be here and who won't be here next season. Who we'll be bringing [into the team], and we also have a very clear idea the style we're going to play."

Regarding the path forward Chivas will take, Real added: "Independent of whether I'm here, I'm not here, the idea is going to remain the same. With or without me.

"The most important part is everyone has the commitment to move forward and move the project forward next season."
