Rayo Vallecano sack coach Michel

Rayo Vallecano have sacked coach Michel.

The former Real Madrid captain was axed on Monday with Rayo sitting second from bottom on the LaLiga table.

Hugely admired in Vallecas, Michel guided Rayo from Segunda B to the Primera, but two months of poor results have seen him dumped.

In a statement, Rayo Vallecano reported on Monday it "has taken the decision to dismiss Michel as coach of the first team. We thank him for his invaluable work during these three seasons leading the squad and his unquestionable successes, reaching promotion to the Primera Division in 2018, a fact that puts him in the honor roll of our almost century-old history".
