Voro Gonzalez has been appointed as Valencia interim coach until the end of the season following the dismissal of Albert Celades.
Voro – who also enjoyed a nine-year stint at the Mestalla during his playing career before becoming a club delegate – is remarkably now in his sixth stint as coach of the club.

This will be the fifth of those occasions where he has been interim and having managed 26 games on a permanent contract for the second half of the 2016-17 season following the sacking of Cesare Prandelli.
Voro, who managed Valencia’s B team between 2002 and 2004, was appointed interim manager for the first time in 2008 following the dismissal of Ronald Koeman.
He was also appointed on a short-term basis after the exits of Mauricio Pellegrino, Nuno Espirito Santo and Pako Ayestarán respectively, and has won a total of 18 from his 36 matches across all his spells in charge.
Los Che confirmed the exit of Celades on Monday evening after a run of just two wins from 13 in all competitions, seeing the club slip to eighth in La Liga and eight points from the Champions League qualification places.
