Michel replaces Romero in Malaga hotseat

Malaga have dismissed Coach Marcelo Romero after only ten matches in charge of the club, with former Sevilla boss Michel taking over.

Romero – nicknamed ‘The Cat’ – was appointed to replace the outgoing Juande Ramos in late December but has won only one of his ten games in charge of Los Boquerones, a run which has seen them slip to 15th and only seven points from the drop zone.

Romero: Malaga must calm down

Marcelo Romero urged his Malaga side to calm down after they had another player sent off on Saturday against Eibar.

Malaga were roundly beaten 3-0 by Eibar to end any hopes of a winning run after their victory over Las Palmas at the start of the week, but Romero was more concerned with Roberto Rosales seeing red, given the Andalusians also went down to 10 men against the islanders.

“We played well, it was a tight game in which we conceded three goals, although we didn’t deserve to,” the Coach said after the game.

Romero: Malaga deserved more

Marcelo Romero insists Malaga were “excellent” and “deserved more” in their draw with Osasuna as the Coach’s wait for a first win goes on.

Ignacio Camacho’s equaliser 10 minutes from time earned Malaga a point, but the result means the Andalusians have not picked up a victory since November 26, with just one point accumulated in four games under Romero.

“We deserved more, but the results are what count,” the Uruguayan said after the match.

The result means the Uruguayan is still looking for his first win since succeeding Juande Ramos in Andalusia, but the 40-year-old was more than happy with his team's performance.

"I am very calm with the work the team is doing," Romero said. "We have been playing against teams who are high in the table.

Romero: 'Malaga will attack'

Malaga boss Marcelo Romero insists his team will attack Real Madrid when they visit the Bernabeu today.

The Andalusia club are on a poor run of form, with the Uruguayan tactician still searching for his first League points since succeeding Juande Ramos just before the turn of the year.

However, Los Boquerones remain comfortably in midtable and their Coach is optimistic about his players' chances at the home of the European champions.

Romero for Ramos

With Marcelo Romero replacing Juande Ramos as Malaga Coach, Luke Taylor looks at what the change means for the Andalusians.

Juande Ramos’ departure from Malaga just before Christmas caused a fair amount of confusion amongst their fans and those of La Liga. The Andalusians’ President, Sheikh Abdullah Al Thani, took to his Twitter account to thank the 62-year-old for his work before the club had officially announced that their former Coach had left by mutual consent, in a manner befitting of Spanish football’s unorthodox ways.
