Malaga Coach Bernd Schuster has confirmed he is leaving the club after their final match of the season tomorrow.
The German’s position has been under scrutiny for some time and, speaking at a Press conference, the tactician revealed he was informed of the inevitable decision to let him go yesterday.
“Yesterday they told me that I wouldn’t be continuing,” Schuster told the assembled reporters. “But it wasn’t a great surprise because I had a feeling that was what would happen.
“I am leaving very happy because we have done our work and everything is fine. I will look for another job.
“That is the decision and I need to respect it. I didn’t sign for five years, that was a lie because there was a clause in the contract that allowed us to part ways.
“They didn’t tell me the reason why I wouldn’t be continuing, but it doesn’t matter.
“I don’t agree with the decision because I think I was up to the job, but the club have an important responsibility and it is something I need to accept.”
Malaga’s final match of the season is at home to Levante tomorrow evening.
“There is one more match for everyone to assess, but the most important thing is that we have reached our objectives.
“Tomorrow we will enjoy the match without tension. We want to finish with a win.”
