The poor streak of results and the loss of credibility in the locker room has cost him the charge. The former player will debut against Athletic
Data.Celades cleans up with Valencia
It was just a matter of dawn in Singapore andPeter Limwould execute the decision. Valencia has dismissedAlbert CeladesAnd beVoro Gonzlezwhoever finishes the season on the bench. The situation of the Catalan coach had become unsustainable, not only because the team has scored four points in this league restart, but because he has lost the credibility of the dressing room. In these circumstances, reacting to continue in the fight for Europe seemed almost impossible.
The intention expressed by the club a week ago was to continue trusting Celades’ coaching staff until the end of the season, although it was already decided that he would not honor his contract, which included continuing to lead the team also next season. In fact, the club has already had contacts with other technicians and Onda Cero Valencia yesterday pointed out the contacts withErnesto Valverde, who already enter Valencia in the pre-Lim stage. The issue focused on finding someone to sit on the bench until July 20. And the gaze is always towards the same name:Voro Gonzlez.
The former player, who served for years as a delegate, had become a kind of link between the management of the club and the first team, although his figure had gone into the background in the last two seasons. Now, he will have the responsibility of ensuring that Valencia ends the season with dignity and, if possible, qualified to play the Champions League or the Europa League next season.
It is not the first time that Voro has taken the reins in difficult times. I first assumed them in 2008, when the commitment toRonald Koemanleft the team on the brink of descent. He repeated later, already with Meriton on the property, after the dismissals ofNuno,AyestarnandPrandelli. Its premiere will be on Wednesday against Athletic in Mestalla.
It is the second time in the Peter Lim stage that Valencia has accumulated more than one coach in one season, since the removal of Celades is compounded byMarcelino Garca Torallast September 12.
