Valencia has issued an official statement in which it announces that it terminates the contract of coach Albert Celades. The last few weeks have been busy at the Che club, including the coach’s confrontation with some of his footballers. In addition, the team’s results have not been consistent after the resumption of the Santander League.

The Catalan coach arrived in the whole of the city of Turia to replace Marcelino. The Valencia season has been irregular and after the club’s losing streak after the return from the competition, the elimination at the hands of Atalanta in the Champions League and the problems in the dressing room, the board of directors has chosen to dismiss Albert Celades.

Voro González will become the new Valencia coach until the end of the season, as announced by the club in the official statement they have issued.
