Canizares sad to see ‘Flaco’ go

Former Valencia ‘keeper Santiago Canizares has expressed his regret over the sacking of former teammate Mauricio Pellegrino.

The duo played together during the club’s glory years a decade ago, with Pellegrino more recently hired then fired as Coach by President Manuel Llorente.

“I regret that Pellegrino has been dismissed and I hope 'Flaco' will get another chance in football,” said the former Spain international. “From outside the club it’s very difficult to give a comprehensive view, but I wish all the luck in the world to Ernesto Valverde.

“The fans have to be more united than ever, but the players must also must demonstrate the commitment required for a big club like Valencia.”
