Valencia confirm they have sacked Albert Celades

Valencia have confirmed that they have sacked Albert Celades. The club has made an official statement on their website that the coach has been removed from his position as first team head coach. From Tuesday, Voro González will take charge of the first team on a provisional basis through to the end of the present season.

The statement reads: “Valencia CF have communicated to Albert Celades his removal from his position as first team coach, with immediate effect. The club wish to thank him publicly for his work and dedication during his time at the club -a period in which we achieved qualification for the knockout stages of the Champions League and important victories at grounds where we had previously not won. The club also value his help and contribution since he took over as coach of the first team in a moment of difficulty, and wish him every success in his future endeavours.”

Celades was appointed as head coach in September 2019 as a replacement for Marcelino, who left his position after a conflict with the club’s board. Celades would lead a total of 41 games at Valencia and during that time he managed to reach the knock out stages of the Champions League. In La Liga Valencia are holding a disappointing eighth position after the first three games after the lockdown ended were all lost. The gap with fourth placed Sevilla is eight points with six games to go.
