Chen Yansheng dismisses Vicente Moreno and will fire Rufete in the next few hours

With the mathematical salvation, a cataract of decisions postponed for weeks by Chen Yansheng has rushed into Espanyol. The first has been the dismissal of Vicente Moreno, who after two years in office will not continue as a coach. Mao Ye, CEO, was in charge of communicating his premature goodbye, which comes with two days to go and after having achieved the objectives with ease, after yesterday's training. The following will be to formalize the dismissal of Rufete, sports director, scheduled for the next few hours.

Both decisions have been made exclusively from China and correspond to a plan drawn up by Chen Yansheng that he plans to execute throughout today and tomorrow. In the case of Vicente Moreno, the dismissal responds to the wear and tear that has occurred on his figure throughout this last season, in which despite having achieved the objective of permanence, the team seems to have reached a ceiling. The owner of the entity considers that the coach's stage was exhausted and he was not the right one to take the club to the next level. This was also claimed by part of the stands, dissatisfied with the football proposal and, especially, with the team's lack of ambition in recent games. This new coach, whose identity is unknown, must give, now, the leap in quality promised by the CEO a few weeks ago. The requirement is to aspire to higher sports levels. This yes, the new technician will not be decided by Rufete.

The until now sports director will have in the next few hours the pending conversation announced by Mao Ye last week and in it he will be informed of his dismissal after three years at the club. In this case, the pressure had been unbearable from the Cornellà crowd, who loudly asked for his resignation in the last home game against Osasuna.

The decision to say goodbye to Moreno, demanded by part of the fans, is fundamentally surprising because it took place two days before the end of the season and after having achieved the objective of permanence. This premature goodbye could have an explanation in the compensation that would correspond to the technician in the event of finishing the course. We must not forget that he had signed another year of contract. Moreno was signed after the descent of the team with the mission of recovering the category. He fulfilled both that goal and saving the team comfortably in the first year in the top flight.

One of the possible scenarios until the end of the season is that Luis Blanco, coach of the subsidiary, is in charge of directing the team in these last two games. Although it is also possible that some of the members of the club's coaching staff such as Ramón Alturo or Dani Parra, who also have the title of coach, could lead the first team until the end of the year.
