Valencia told by Voro Gonzalez he doesn't want to stay on as coach

Voro Gonzalez took charge of Valencia in January.

Valencia will have to find a new coach for next season with Voro Gonzalez having informed the club that he does not want to continue in the role.

Club delegate and former Valencia player Voro took temporary charge of the team after Cesare Prandelli's resignation in December. Former Italy coach Prandelli had just three months earlier taken over after the dismissal of Pako Ayesteran.

Valencia announced on Jan. 10 that Voro would continue as coach until the end of the season, and he has made it clear that does not want carry on next term, according to the club's general director Mateo Alemany.

Alemany told Onda Cero: "I have not asked him [Voro] if he will continue, but it is he who has said it clearly on several occasions that he does not wish to coach Valencia.

"He has done a great job and he has to continue to do it until the end of the campaign. The decision of the coach, we will take in due time. He is an asset to this club and will continue in a position that he is happy in. I don't see him going back to being club delegate but we will see what happens."

Valencia have won seven, including Thursday's 3-2 home win over Celta Vigo, and lost five of their 15 league games under Voro, and are 12th in La Liga with eight matches of the season remaining.

Voro has not spoken about his future but Valencia right-back Martin Montoya revealed last month that he has no intention to remain in charge beyond the summer.

"Voro has always told us that he doesn't want to be coach, that he is very happy as club delegate," he was quoted as saying by Superdeporte.

Las Palmas coach Quique Setien is reportedly among the candidates to succeed Voro. Setien announced last month that he would not continue at Las Palmas beyond his current contract, which expires this summer, and says he is "monitoring Valencia's situation."

"I don't know if Voro will continue, I really don't know," Setien was quoted as saying by Superdeporte. "We have to wait and monitor it."

However, Setien denied he has been contacted by Valencia sporting director Jose Ramon Alexanco.

"I have not spoken to Alexanco," he said. "No one has spoken to me."
