Villarreal rehire Javi Calleja after sacking Luis Garcia Plaza
Villarreal have appointed Javi Calleja after sacking Luis Garcia Plaza after just nine games in charge of el Submarino Amarillo.
Fernando Roig, president of Villarreal CF, has appeared before the media to give his explanations after announcing the dismissal of Luis García Plaza as first team coach.
The leader of the Villarreal club spoke about the current situation of the squad and the situation of the club, and announced that Javi Calleja returns to the bench until the end of the season.
“From my experience, I assume the decision to make a change in the direction, it is a necessary change and under my responsibility, and I believe that we need a technician who knows the team, the club and the responsibility to take this forward, so we take up the relationship with Calleja, “said Roig to Levante-emv.com.
Calleja was sacked on December 10th last year with the club in the relegation zone and not much has improved with the club four points from safety.
