Difficult Days At Racing Santander

Mayhem continues to reign at Racing Santander as coach Juan Carlos Unzue and Director of Football Manolo Saiz look set to be axed from the club.

Unzue and Saiz both signed contracts with the Racing club earlier this summer on June 22, with Saiz agreeing to stay at the club in his Director of Football role for another three years.

Former Barcelona goalkeeping coach, Unzue took over the club after leaving the Catalans when Pep Guardiola announced his departure in May.

However, a power struggle between Saiz and former Club President Francisco Pernia has caused chaos at the club with the former still believed to be calling the shots at the club.

Racing were relegated from La Liga last season and with just five days to go until the new season starts, they now face legal action from both Unzue and Saiz.

Assistant coach Jimmy Alvarez and fitness coach Julian Jimenez are also expected to leave the club, along with centre-backs Iago Bouzon and Rigo who were signed by Unzue and Saiz.
