Celta de Vigo have decided to part ways with Oscar Garcia after the Galician side failed to record a win for yet another weekend. On Friday the team were held to a 1-1 draw by Elche and that result has made the Celta board decide to sack Garcia. Celta are currently in 17th position in LaLiga and currently on a seven-match streak without winning.
“Óscar García Junyent and his coaching staff will no longer be coach RC Celta,” the club said in a statement. “The club conveys its sincere gratitude, both to the Catalan coach and to his team, for the work, professionalism and effort they’ve shown throughout their time at RC Celta, in which they managed to consolidate LaLiga status during a complicated 2019/20 season.”
Garcia, a former FC Barcelona midfielder, took charge of Celta in November 2019 and he managed to save the club from relegation last season. During his career he has been a youth coach at Barcelona and he enjoyed spells at Maccabi Tel Aviv (ISR), Brighton & Hove Albion, Watford, Red Bull Salzburg, Saint-Etienne and Olympiakos Pireaus.
