Unai Emery is expected to succeed the Madrid coach on the bench of the Yellow Submarine.
Villarreal announced this Monday that Javier Calleja ceases to be the coach of the Castellón team, which he classified for the next edition of the Europa League. The Madrilenian led the Yellow Submarine in 131 official matches (57 wins, 30 draws and 44 losses).
Although it was not disclosed who will replace Calleja, it is expected that the Basque Unai Emery will succeed him on the bench of the La Cerámica stadium.
It should be remembered that Calleja had been somewhat obfuscated before the press after Sunday’s victory over Eibar. “My future? I don’t know if you know because I don’t know. I am true to myself and the feeling I have is not going to change. I spoke to the club and they told me that this weekend they would think about it and they would talk to me already, “he said.
The march of the capital technician opens the door of Villarreal to Emery, who would have already reached an agreement with the La Plana club since before the confinement by coronavirus.
