Malaga has fired the head coach, Míchel yesterday after a calamitous string of results which has seen the club languishing in the relegation waters.

The club lost 1:0 to Getafe in their Spanish La Liga encounter on Friday night to complete an unfortunate run of four defeats in a row prompting the club to part ways with their Manager.

After 19 rounds of matches, the Blues and Whites are positioned at the deep bottom of the league table about five points off safety with their rivals yet to play.

According to a club release on Saturday to announce the Manager’s sack, the club wrote: “Sadly, the team has been unable to put together a run of results since the start of the season which has left us in the relegation zone. We feel that a change is necessary to try and turn this around.

“Malaga CF is working hard in this winter market to strengthen the squad. Having already signed Ignasi Miquel, Manuel Iturra, and Alberto Bueno, the club hopes that even more recruits, plus a new head coach, can motivate the group and push us in the right direction.

“We wish Míchel all the best in the future and thank him for his professionalism,” the statement concluded.

The fired Manager was only appointed in March 2017 as the third Manager to be hired for 2016/17 season after Juande Ramos and Marcelo Romero had been previously sacked.
