Asier explains Leganes departure

Asier Garitano has told a Press conference that there was no specific reason he did not want to continue as boss of Leganes next term.

However, he did believe the time was right to leave the Madrid club after deciding to depart at the end of the season.

“There are feelings that you have and that’s it, but there was no single thing that caused it and I just felt it was time to go,” explained the 48-year-old, who has been in charge at Butarque for five years.

“I took my time over it to make certain, although if the feelings are like that then you have to go ahead. The most important thing is to stay calm with yourself – and I am. It was not easy and I didn’t want to have doubts about renewing my contract.

“The club and myself have been growing hand-in-hand. I came from being a Coach in Segunda B with the ambition to keep growing. I’ve had five incredibly god years, although I would have liked to have won the cup, but I am happy with what we have done,” declared Garitano.
