Celta Vigo

Rafa Benitez is SACKED by Celta Vigo after a dismal eight months


Celta Vigo have announced that they have parted ways with their manager, Rafa Benitez for 'failing to achieve the club's expectations'. 

The Spaniard joined the LaLiga club in July 2023, returning to management a year after he was let go by Everton. 

Benitez took charge of 33 games at Celta Vigo, losing 14 of those games to see his side slump to 17th in the Spanish top flight, two points clear of the relegation zone. 


The club said in a statement: 'Rafa Benítez and his staff leave RC Celta after eight months of absolute dedication and total commitment, but in which the team has not obtained the results expected by the club.

'The club would like to express to Rafa Benítez and his assistants its most sincere gratitude for the honesty and professionalism they have shown since their arrival and the tireless work they have done. RC Celta would also like to wish them the best of luck and success in the future.'
