Portugal parts company with Racing Club

Miguel Ángel Portugal has reached the end of his second spell in charge of Real Racing Club, with the Liga side 16th in the standings after collecting just five league wins in 2010/11.

Real Racing Club have begun their search for a new coach after it was announced that Miguel Ángel Portugal would not be continuing at the helm of the northern Spanish outfit.

After leading the Cantabrian club to a tenth-place finish in 2006/07, the 55-year-old has endured a more difficult second spell at El Sardinero since his appointment in November 2009. The team narrowly missed out on relegation last season, and this term have managed just five league wins from 22 outings.

Portugal, a former Real Madrid CF midfielder and technical director, leaves Racing lying in 16th spot in the Liga standings, one point off the relegation zone.
