Valencia has fired Marcelino as manager after two seasons.
“Valencia told Marcelino Garcia Toral on Wednesday that he is no longer first team coach,” a club statement said. “The club would like to thank him for his work and dedication during his time at our entity and wish him success for the future.”
Marcelino guided Valencia to a Champions League place last season but they've only taken four points from three matches this season.
Valencia have key upcoming matches against Barcelona in La Liga and Chelsea in the Champions League.
