Having been suspended a couple of days ago by Malaga, the club has now officially announced the sacking of coach Victor Sanchez del Amo after an x-rated video of him half nude found its way to the internet.
An official statement by the club read:
“Malaga Football Club has made the decision to dismiss Victor Sanchez del Amo due to disciplinary reasons.”
“Malaga has made the decision taking into account the serious damage caused to the institution by the recent events, aiming to minimise the impact on the team and the entire organisation.
“Until a new coach is named, Sergio Pellicer will act as first team coach.”
The 43-year-old former Real Madrid and Spain winger has however defended himself with claims that he was the victim of blackmail and that the case has been reported to the police for further investigation.
“The matter is in the hands of the police.
Sharing or disseminating intimate content of any person without consent is a crime.”
Fingers crossed as the drama unfolds.
