Thanks offered
An official club statement said: "Celta have ended Vázquez's period as coach and would like to thank him for all the work he has done." The 52-year-old has had a difficult campaign in the Primera División with his side earning just one win in 14 domestic home games at the Balaídos Stadium. Vázquez joined the club in 2004, earning them promotion back to the Primera División in the 2004/05 season, and then reaching sixth place in the table and earning a European place in the following campaign. His side subsequently battled through the UEFA Cup group stage but lost out to Werder Bremen in the Round of 16.
