Real Zaragoza confirmed this Monday the dismissal of Fran Escribá as coach, a decision that comes after a bad streak of results that has chained the Zaragoza team, which had had a promising start in LaLiga Hypermotion 2023-2024 and which has been going on for more than a month. without knowing victory.

“Real Zaragoza and Fran Escribá end their contractual relationship. The Valencian coach stops being coach of the Zaragoza team after having coached a total of 45 official matches,” the Madrid team indicated on its website.

The Valencian coach had spent almost a year at the helm of Zaragoza, which he arrived on November 7, 2022, and now he leaves the bench with the team in twelfth position with 22 points, just five away from the playoff zone. one more from relegation, but immersed in a bad dynamic that culminated last Saturday with the defeat in La Romareda in the derby against SD Huesca.

And after starting the season with five consecutive victories, the Zaragoza team has only been able to add one more in its next eleven league games, to which we must add the elimination in the Copa del Rey against Atzneta from the Tercera Valenciana.

“Escribá decided to bet on our club in a time of difficulty and contributed impeccable work and total dedication during this stage. From Real Zaragoza we want to thank the involvement of Fran Escribá and his coaching staff, David Generelo and Julen Masach, with our club and we wish them all the luck in their future professional and personal challenges,” said Real Zaragoza.
