“The victim here is me. I’m a victim of blackmail but I’m brave and I’ll move on from this”.
The club’s statement read;
‘Malaga have decided to sack Victor Sanchez del Amo for disciplinary reasons,’ the club said in a statement.
‘Malaga took this decision in consideration of the serious harm the recent non-sporting events have done to the club, with the aim of minimising their impact on the team and the whole organisation of Malaga.’
Sanchez took over the Malaga coaching job in 2019 after almost two years out of football following his 2017 sacking from Real Betis.
