Nuno Espirito Santo Resigns From Valencia

Valencia Nuno Espiritu Santo
Valencia manager Nuno Espiritu Santo looks on prior to the La Liga match between Valencia CF and UD Las Palmas at Estadi de Mestalla on November 21, 2015 in Valencia, Spain.

Valencia head coach Nuno Espirito Santo has resigned from his post of manager after Valencia’s 1-0 defeat away to Sevilla Sunday. The defeat left “Los Che” reeling in ninth place in La Liga. Sergio Escudero‘s goal was enough to see Sevilla defeat Valencia at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan. The match in Seville also saw both Cancelo and Javi Fuego both seeing red.

Nuno Espirito Santo was appointed Valencia boss back in July of 2014 and guided “Los Che” to fourth place in La Liga and that vital Champions League Qualification spot. Currently Valencia lingers in ninth in La Liga but they are also on the verge of crashing out of the Champions League. Valencia’s current position in the Champions League is not only in their hands but depends on Zenit’s performance on the final day of the group stage.

Surprisingly the Portuguese manager informed the Valencia owner, Peter Lim, that he intended to resign before the match against Sevilla. “Before the game I spoke with the president, with the owner, Peter Lim, and we are all in agreement that the situation is not good. We all want to do the best for the club,” stated Nuno Espirito Santo. “Its for that reason that I have taken the decision to leave the club. It’s been an honor to coach the club.”

Presently many in Spain have suggested that Phil Neville will take over the training this week. Phil Neville had been working with Nuno Espirito Santo as an assistant. The possible successors to Nuno are Frank Rijkaard and Michael Laudrup.
