The Asturian has added only 5 of the 33 possible points at the head of the Vitorian team and the owner of the entity, Josean Querejeta, has decided to stop him. Only a few minutes after losing 1 to 3 against Celta in Mendizorroza, the club's Sports Director, Sergio Fernández, was already negotiating with Javi Calleja, a 41-year-old from Madrid who has made his professional career in all the teams in the structure of the Villarreal. It can be released against Athletic in San Mamés.

Yesterday's defeat against Celta (1-3) and the positive results of some direct rivals triggered the decision. El Pitu said in the press room that he had scheduled a meeting with the Sporting Director but that he would wait for things to cool down a bit. Those who predicted that the matter would be made public on the same Sunday were wrong. In fact, Alavés reported the weekly work plan to the media without even announcing the Gijón's departure. As if everything continues with total normality.

It is not very clear if the Alavés coach had the strength to carry out the project or not. What is obvious is that the owner, Josean Querejeta, had gotten tired. It is expected that today, Monday, Javi Calleja will travel to Vitoria to negotiate in person the last details of his contract and that tomorrow he will get to work with the first work session in the sports city of Ibaia. On Saturday Athletic Bilbao awaits in San Mamés after their defeat in the Seville Cup final. Alavés currently has 23 points and is 3 of the permanent positions marked by Elche.

Abelardo did not have a good farewell in his first visit to Vitoria as a player. He had a bad season and forgave the second year of his contract making the decision to retire. He did become a hero, however, when he pulled the team out of the well after the passage of Luis Zubeldia and Gianni De Biasi. But second parts were never good and his second tour on the bench has been very poor. Pablo Machín, who had started the season, added 18 points in 18 games but Pitu only 5 out of 33. In addition, he was eliminated in the Copa del Rey against Almería by 5 goals to 0. This transition has been quite similar to his stay in Espanyol from last season.
