Football coach Gracia to leave Malaga

Madrid (AFP) – Malaga coach Javier Gracia will not continue in charge of the Andalusians next season despite two impressive campaigns in charge, the club announced on Tuesday.

“Javier Gracia Carlos will not continue next season at Malaga and leaves the club after two seasons in charge of the first team,” Malaga said in a statement.

Gracia led cash-strapped Malaga to eighth this season and a respectable ninth last season, including a memorable 1-0 win away at Barcelona.

Despite being linked with a move to the English Premier League, Spanish sports daily Marca reported Gracia’s next move will be to Russian side Rubin Kazan where he could sign a four-year deal worth 12 million euros ($13.5 million).
