Molinos leaving Zaragoza

Fernando Molinos has confirmed that he is leaving his position as President at Real Zaragoza after just one year.

Former Espanyol sporting director and Vice-President Molinos was brought in at La Romareda last summer by owner Agapito Iglesias.

However, he has confirmed that he won’t be signing an extension to his contract at the newly-relegated outfit.

“I’m leaving. My contract as President of Zaragoza is over and I will not renew,” Molinos told AS.

“Another thing is the moral commitment, and after the relegation I cannot disappear overnight.

“Now I am deciding on my departure but assisting in the schedule for next season.

“I will not continue. I have always made it clear that I came here for a year. In these weeks I will participate in the transfer of power and leave office.”

Molinos is seen as unlikely to be involved in sporting aspects of the club’s plans for next season, beyond negotiating Coach Manolo Jimenez’ exit.
