Getafe fires Míchel and the coach leaves the azulón team as bottom of LaLiga

Míchel’s last adventure on the LaLiga benches has ended. The president of Getafe, Ángel Torres, has decided to dismiss the coach after the poor results of this start of the season. With seven consecutive losses and only one point added In the first eight days, against Real Sociedad this Sunday (1-1), it was a matter of time. The coach leaves the blue club bottom and five points from salvation. For his part, he is just two more defeats from reaching the worst losing streak of a coach in LaLiga that Pako Ayestarán has with 13.

Despite the staunch defense of the president towards Míchel in recent times, the doubts that the team left in both areas and his lack of forcefulness to tie games has blown up his future at the head of the Madrid team. “You have an obsession with Míchel. You cannot play with the work of a professional, be more respectful, “said Ángel Torres when asked two weeks ago about the situation on the bench.

After a great first half against Atlético de Madrid, Luis Suárez managed to overcome the match in the second half and flew some points that he had in his bag until minute 78. It would not be the first time that Getafe left empty after offering a good game. Some footballers went to the locker room in tears, touched because the results will not travel hand in hand with the game. Míchel was sincere at a press conference: “A lot of work for so little prize. I can’t blame my players for anything.”

Then came the match against Betis at Benito Villamarín where the Verdiblanco team passed over Getafe. The last bullet would be at home, against Real Sociedad. However, the 1-1 condemned a Míchel who had to listen as part of the stands sang the famous “Míchel go now, Míchel go now”. The coach wanted to support his team and send one last message: “I thank the players who have this attitude. Some know what work is and we know what the results are and we have to accept it. The footballers feel bad because they have a good relationship with me. The results make you hide certain things“.

With this dismissal in his second adventure in front of the azulón box, Míchel accumulates his fourth consecutive failure as a coach after bad experiences at Sevilla, Olimpique de Marseille and Malaga. According to the latest information, the president would already be probing his possible replacement. Juan Ramón López Muñiz, Quique Sánchez Flores and former Lugo coach Juanfran are playing.
