According to AS, Quique Sánchez Flores will take over as Getafe’s new coach on Monday night. On Monday afternoon, Michel was dismissed from his duties, and former Watford manager Quique Sánchez Flores is set to take over on Tuesday.
The Spanish coach previously managed Getafe in 2004-05 and 2014-15, and club president ngel Torres is said to have decided to bring him back to the La Liga club. Sánchez Flores has also declined a managerial role with Levante, indicating that he would return to the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez.
Sacking of Head Coach Míchel
Michel, the head coach of Getafe, has been fired. Under the Spanish coach, Los Azulones had only one point from their first eight league games this season. On Sunday, Michel’s farewell game with the club ended in a 1-1 draw at home against Real Sociedad.
Getafe, who hasn’t won in eight games and is in last place in La Liga, fired Michel on Monday. The draw gave Real Madrid their first point of the season, but it was not enough to save Jose Miguel Gonzalez Martin del Campo, better known as “Michel.”
According to Marca, Quique Sánchez Flores is the favorite to succeed Alfonso Pérez at the Coliseum. Getafe has had two past managers, including the former Watford manager.
