Gennaro Gattuso became the 10th coach to leave Valencia in the last nine years on Monday night when he parted company with the Peter Lim-owned club.

The Italian had lost three of his last four league games and leaves by mutual consent having taken charge of just 22 matches, six fewer than Gary Neville, who Lim dismissed in 2016.

Lim, who took over Valencia in October 2014, has put club delegate Salvador Gonzalez 'Voro' in charge for Thursday's league meeting with Real Madrid. It will be his sixth stint as caretaker in the Lim era.
