Albert Celades is already history in Valencia. The Mestalla club issued an official statement shortly before 8:40 p.m. announcing the departure of the Andorran coach from the Valencian discipline “with immediate effect.” The reins are taken by an old acquaintance of the black and white bench and in difficult situations: Voro.
In the document published on the club’s website, the entity thanks “publicly all its work and dedication” by Celades in charge of the Valencia first team, “period in which the classification for the knockout stage of the Champions was reached, in addition to sign prestigious victories in a scenario in which they had not been previously achieved, “acknowledges the club.
The coach led his last training session on Monday after his team suffered on Sunday at Villarreal’s field their second loss in a row. The team’s bad streak, which has only been able to add four of the fifteen points that have already been put into play, has sentenced the coach.
The dismissal of Celades was not the only way out on a Monday more than convulsive for Valencia. César Sánchez, who assumed the sports direction of the club last January, has presented its resignation by understanding that their work has not been valued by Meriton, the business group to which Valencia belongs. And is that the Extremaduran had ratified the Catalan technician in office on Monday morning.
«Until now the director of football for Valencia, César Sánchez, has presented this Monday the resignation of his post at the head of the entity’s technical secretariat. The club wishes to publicly thank them for their services and wishes them the best of luck in their future professional career, ”the club announced in an official statement.
César Sánchez had tried to redirect the situation within the Valencian locker room in recent days and was betting on the continuity of Celades at least until the end of the season. However, his position has been ignored in Singapore. Peter Lim, maximum shareholder of the black and white entity, has opted for the dismissal of the coach and this decision has led to the resignation of the sports director. The relationship had worn out.
