Espanyol announced on Monday through a statement the dismissal of hitherto blue and white coach David Gallego , due to the poor results that the Catalan team has reaped in the first days of the 2019-20 campaign. Pablo Machín , without a team since March, will take over the team for the next two seasons.

With Gallego, the blue and white team is penultimate in the classification of First with five points. Espanyol won the CSKA in Moscow in the Europa League last Thursday, a result that gave the technician oxygen. However, the defeat against Mallorca on Sunday (2-0) sentenced the coach.

David Gallego premiered in office two seasons ago provisionally, after the dismissal of Quique Sánchez Flores , and led the team in the last five days. After Rubi's goodbye last summer, the club relied on him to take over the blue and white project in the current campaign.

The blue and white entity thanked, in a statement, the "dedication and work" of David Gallego at Espanyol during the six seasons he has been in the club . The club defined him as an "important figure" and highlighted his successes as a coach in grassroots football.

The text of his goodbye has collected, in addition, the titles he has garnered in his stage in the Dani Jarque Sports City: third division champion, promotion to Second B, two leagues with Juvenile A and a junior championship championship runner-up . Gallego has also actively participated in the training of youth players.

Pablo Machín was without a team after leaving Sevilla last March. The new head of the blue and white bench will have two weeks to work with the team due to the stoppage of LaLiga for international commitments. Despite the public ratification of the club before playing against CSKA, last week, with two games, it was key to gauge the future of Gallego.
