Valencia CF reacted to the ongoing downward trend four game days before the end of the season and sacked their coach Javi Gracia. The club announced on Monday. After just ten months, the 3-2 home defeat against FC Barcelona on Sunday was Gracia’s last game as Valencia’s head coach.
Former Spanish international Salvador Gonzalez will temporarily lead training. This is the sixth time that he will be the club’s interim coach. On Sunday (from 4.15 p.m. LIVE on DAZN) Gonzalez makes his debut in the important game against fellow rivals in the relegation battle, Real Valladolid.
After six games in a row without a win, Valencia are only 14th in the Primera Division. They are six points ahead of the relegation ranks.
