Ronald Koeman has stepped down as coach of Valencia CF after Sunday’s 5-1 loss at Athletic Club Bilbao left the six-time Spanish champions in relegation danger.
The 45-year-old former Dutch international joined the club from PSV Eindhoven in November, to replace Quique Sanchez Flores, signing a two-and-a-half year contract, but since his arrival, Valencia have slipped from sixth to 15th in the Primera División and are within two points of the relegation places, despite winning the Spanish Cup on 16 April, beating Getafe CF 3-1 in the final.
Koeman left the club following a meeting on Monday along with his assistants José Mari Bakero, Toni Bruins Slot and sporting director Miguel Ángel Ruiz. Since he took over, Valencia have won four games, drawn six and lost 22, while the coach’s decision to drop captain David Albelda, goalkeeper Santiago Ca
ñizares and winger Miguel Ángel Angulo caused controversy
