The situation had frankly become unmanageable in Galicia. As we told you this Monday, Rafael Benítez was going through a real nightmare on the Celta de Vigo bench. Arriving at the start of the season on the Balaidos bench, the former coach of Liverpool and Real Madrid failed to turn the club around sportingly. Currently, Celta de Vigo is in 17th place and is only two points ahead of the relegation zone. This Tuesday, the Vigo-based club took a drastic measure and parted ways with the 62-year-old coach.

Rafa Benítez and RC Celta part ways. Our most sincere appreciation to Rafael Benítez and his technical staff for the involvement, honesty and professionalism he demonstrated during his time at the club.
