Espanyol announce Galca exit


Espanyol will begin the search for a new head coach after announcing Constantin Galca will leave the club at the end of June.

The Romanian took charge in December when Espanyol were 12th and needed a final-day win against Eibar to secure safety.

"RCD Espanyol thank them [Galca and his assistants] for their professionalism, dedication and meeting the goals set at the end of the season," a club statement read.

"In a complicated season, Galca and his assistants reached the goal of keeping the first team in the top flight of Spanish football, while always showing  a firm commitment to the club.

"RCD Espanyol wishes them every success in their professional future and other sporting challenges that may confront them in the future."
