Valencia have decided to part ways with manager Gennaro Gattuso, the club confirmed on Monday.
The Italian was in charge of 22 matches in all competitions. Of those, he won only seven, of which two were in Copa del Rey.
He was also involved in five draws and 10 defeats, which paints the full picture of Gattuso’s poor recent spell at Mestalla.
Valencia picked up just 20 points out of 54 available in the league, and currently sit in 14th place, a point off of the relegation zone, albeit with a game in hand.
The club communicated that it is grateful to Gattuso’s commitment and work over the past months in charge of the first team, and would like to wish him the best in the future.
The team will return for training under the management of Salvador “Voro” González, who has been with Los Che since 2002 and has worked at the club as an interim boss on several occasions.
Valencia-based journalist Héctor Gómez reports that Voro will be in charge of Valencia until the end of the current season.
As a player, Voro played 245 games for Valencia from 1984 to 1993.
