Football manager Michel booted out by floundering Malaga club

MICHEL: Kicked out MICHEL: Kicked out

MALAGA Club de Futbol has sacked head coach Michel Gonzalez after just ten months in the job.

Following a poor start to the season, the team have only won three games and 11 points during 19 La Liga matches, and face relegation.

The 1-0 loss to Michel's former club Getafe proved to be the last straw for the manager, whose dismissal was revealed in a statement on the team’s website.

It was announced the manager will depart from the team when the first round of La Liga is complete.

“Michel Gonzalez arrived last season during a very difficult situation, and the coach was able to turn things around and end the season in a mid-table position. Unfortunately, since the beginning of this campaign, the team has been unable to achieve a string of good results to move out of the relegation zone, and the Club deems this action necessary to seek that reaction,” the statement read.

The club revealed it is now working on finding a substitute, with the “enthusiasm and excitement to motivate all ‘Malaguismo’”.

Before taking on coaching duties at Malaga, Michel had previously worked at Sevilla and Getafe.
