By Amosu Adeboye

Super Eagles duo, Kenneth Omeruo and Chidozie Awaziem will now work under a new coach at Leganes after the Spanish LaLiga club parted ways with Mauricio Pellegrino on Monday.

Leganes have endured a torrid start to the season and are the only side yet to record a win in the league this term.

The Cucumbers occupy bottom spot in the table with two points from their opening nine games.

The modest side lost 2-0 away to Getafe on Saturday to further pile pressure on Pellegrino.

Luis Cembranos and Carlos Martinez have been placed in temporary charge of the team until the appointment of a new manager.

“Leganés and Mauricio Pellegrino have decided, by mutual agreement, to part ways. The Argentine coach, who managed last season to keep the team one more year in the First Division, will not manage the team next weekend against Mallorca,”reads a statement on Leganes’ official website.

“C.D Leganés wishes Mauricio Pellegrino and his coaching staff the best of lucks in the future and thanks them for the work done during the time as managers of the cucumber squad.

“Luis Cembranos and Carlos Martinez, who until now were C.D. Leganés B’s coaches, will be in charge of managing the team in the next sessions.”

They will host Real Mallorca in their next league game on Saturday.
