Second-tier La Liga clubside, Malaga have dismissed coach Victor Sanchez del Amo based on disciplinary reasons, Naijaparry can confirm.

“MCF have made their best efforts to be able to resolve the existing situation in a friendly manner through intense negotiations with Victor Sanchez del Amo. However, despite the continuous and incessant efforts of the club, arriving at a friendly separation hasn’t been possible.
“As a result, MCF have decided to dismiss Victor Sanchez del Amo based on disciplinary causes, in accordance with the applicable rules.
“MCF have taken this decision considering the serious harm caused to the institution by the recent non-sporting events, in the objective of minimising its impact on the team and the whole MCF organisation.”
