The coach said yesterday: "The final decision was made on Wednesday. I have evaluated many things and I am deeply grateful to the president, the managers, the technical body, the players, the Press and, mainly, to the fans for the way they have supported me.
"Football is a very serious game. Players and trainers must take advantage of the moments, and everything works in the very short term.
"An opportunity has appeared and I do not know if I would get another one like this."
