Voro will not continue as Valencia coach

Valencia's interim coach Voro has revealed he will not continue in the role next season as the club look for a replacement.

The former defender has guided Valencia clear of relegation trouble in LaLiga this season, with an improved run of form since his appointment at the turn of the year lifting the side to 13th place.

However, that has not been enough to convince the board Voro should be given the job on a full-time basis, with the 53-year-old confirming his impending demotion as he continues in a different role.

"[On Friday] the club told me that they are looking for a new coach," Voro told a pre-match press conference ahead of facing bottom-of-the-table Osasuna on Sunday. 

"In so many press conferences we have talked about the future and I told you that the club would decide.

"The decision was communicated to me by [sporting director Jose Ramon] Alesanco when I arrived at the airport [upon returning from Singapore after meeting the owner].

"I will continue to work at Valencia. I do not know in what role."
