« In my opinion, it was completely unnecessary. It’s normal for him to leave, but not this way, » the 56-year-old said. « It wasn’t good for his new club because their players don’t want to see pictures related to the new season either, they want to focus on the current one. It wasn’t good for us either because there were troubles. » However, he will give his full support to Grimaldo in the last two games because he is a great professional.
