- Story Text: Valencia confirmed on Friday (December 30) that former Italy coach Cesare Prandelli has resigned from the club after less than three months.
A statement on the club's website (www.valenciacf.com) said: "Cesare Prandelli has communicated to Valencia Club de Futbol his irrevocable decision to resign from his position as coach, as of Friday, December 30th. 'Voro' Gonzalez will take over in charge of the first team squad."
Prandelli posed with a team jersey with his name on it on October 3, shaking hands with the club's president Layhoon Chan as he was introduced to reporters. He was the club's ninth coach since 2012.
The Italian had only one win out of eight matches in charge. After a 2-1 win over Sporting Gijon in his first match in charge, Valencia have lost four and drawn three, languishing in 17th place in the La Liga standings with 12 points from 15 games, above the relegation zone only on goal difference.
