Celta Vigo parts ways with Benitez

Celta Vigo’s decision to sack Rafael Benitez marks the end of a challenging chapter for the former Liverpool, Chelsea, and Newcastle manager.

Benitez took charge of Celta in June, aiming to revitalize the team’s performance. However, his tenure was marred by disappointing results, winning just one of his last five matches and securing nine victories in 33 games overall.

Celta’s decision to part ways with Benitez comes as the club finds itself in a precarious position in the La Liga standings, sitting 17th with just two points above the relegation zone.

The club expressed gratitude for Benitez’s dedication and professionalism during his time with the team but ultimately felt the need to make a change in leadership to improve results.

Benitez’s departure from Celta Vigo comes at a critical juncture in the season, with the club facing a crucial game against Sevilla in their next fixture.

The team will be looking to secure vital points to avoid slipping further down the table.

Despite the challenges faced at Celta, Benitez remains optimistic about his future in football, expressing his desire to eventually move into international management.

As Benitez departs Celta Vigo, the club will now begin the search for a new manager to lead them through the remainder of the season and beyond.
