08 Apr 2019
The board of directors decided to fire the coach after the defeat with Rayo Majadahonda. The inability to revert the negative results is costing the job to Natxo González. It’s the eighth coach that leaves the club after five years with Tino Fernández.

The club announced on Sunday the exit of coach Natxo González.  The poor impression left in the defeat with Rayo Majadahonda was the straw that broke the camel’s back after a 2019 full of bad results. The board of directors had a meeting with Carmelo Del Pozo and his exit was confirmed. The new coach should be named on Monday as the team will return to train on Tuesday.

Natxo arrived last summer in order to command the promotion project to the elite, things worked since the start, but everything changed in 2019 with the team only able to win three times after thirteen matches. The Basque man leaves Depor after 32 meetings, period in which the team added 12 wins and 15 draws plus suffering 5 defeats.

It’s the eighth coach that leaves Deportivo after five years with president Tino Fernández. Of the previous seven coaches, six were fired: Fernando Vázquez, Víctor Fernández, Víctor Sánchez del Amo, Gaizka Garitano, Pepe Mel and Cristóbal Parralo, only Clarence Seedorf left after ending his contract.
