😳 Costa Rican giants Deportivo Saprissa announce three different coaches in five hours

Costa Rican top-flight outfit club Deportivo Saprissa announced three coaching changes in the space of five hours before finally confirming Mauricio Wright is taking the reins.

The 35-time Costa Rican champions sacked Roy Myers on Monday after the team's 5-0 home defeat to Alajuelense. Saprissa, unthinkably., is now on an 11-match winless streak which leaves them languishing in sixth in the Clausura tournament with four games to play. 

Saprissa president Juan Carlos Rojas held a news conference on Tuesday where he announced that the club's former player Mauricio Wright would replace Myers for the remainder of the campaign. However, the club's media then made a correction 40 minutes later by announcing that Wright would be assistant to Marco Herrera.

The club informed everyone four hours later that Wright would guide the team and not Herrera, as had been announced earlier that day. 

"Deportivo Saprissa informs the media and fans that, as indicated by our President Juan Carlos Rojas, Mauricio Wright will be the team's new coach for the remainder of the Clausura tournament," the club said.

"In addition, we clarify that for Tuesday's game [at Limon] Marco Herrera will guide the team since Mauricio Wright must serve a one-match ban."

What a rollercoaster!
