Santander fires Gonzalez, cuts coaching staff to 2

Share This Story



Racing Santander has reduced its three-man coaching staff to two by firing Juan Jose Gonzalez.

Gonzalez, who was let go on Wednesday, had been appointed with Fede Castanos and Pablo Pinillos as coaches with relatively equal responsibility after head coach Hector Cuper was fired in December.

Castanos and Pinillos will now lead the team for its final 13 games of the season.

Santander is in 18th place and three points from safety in the Spanish league standings. The club is winless in seven games going into Sunday's match at its Sardinero stadium against defending champion Barcelona.
