Depor sack Cristobal, Seedorf next?

Deportivo La Coruna have sacked Coach Cristobal Parralo after a poor run of results and could replace him with ex-Real Madrid midfielder Clarence Seedorf.

Friday’s 5-0 hammering by Real Sociedad was the final straw for Depor as it left the club 18th in La Liga, three points adrift of safety.

Cristobal was only promoted from their B team in October, but the Galicians’ former defender oversaw nine defeats and just three wins in 15 games.

Martin Lasarte was the early favourite to replace the 50-year-old, but AS reports the ex-Real Sociedad boss has rejected Depor’s offer due to “a lack of clarity over the team’s situation and project that was put on the table.”

Reports in Spain also claim Pachuca Coach Diego Alonso had accepted the role but was quickly discarded after it emerged the ex-Valencia and Atletico Madrid striker could not start work for three weeks over a licencing issue.

Consequently, AS believes Seedorf “will become their new Coach” as he can take charge immediately, having been out of work since leaving Chinese outfit Shenzhen FC last year.

The Dutchman won a League title and Champions League with Madrid between 1996 and 1999 but is best known for his decade-long spell at Milan, where he won Serie A twice and as many European cups.
