Braulio Vazquez expected to be named Real Valladolid’s new sporting director
Former Valencia sporting director, Braulio Vazquez is expected to be named the new sporting director of Real Valladolid within the next several days and is expected to lead the club from the Segunda Division back to the Primera, should they get relegated this season.
Vazquez spent three Champions League qualifying-laden years at Valencia before he was dismissed in November of 2013 in a massive upheaval which saw then manager Miroslav Djukic and president Manuel Llorente also leave the club.
However, according to El Norte de Castilla, Vazquez has been in talks with Real Valladolid to led them back to their glory days and their rebuilding project, with the report going on to add that the deal is “virtually closed.”
When asked for comment, Vazquez politely decline, stating “I have nothing to say. I’m sorry and forgive me.”
Current sporting director Alberto Marcos is expected to remain with the club but serve in a lesser role, but failed to impress during the January transfer window and the club will allow Vazquez full reign to do what he can within their economic limitations.
Real Valladolid president, Carlos Suarez was quite frank in his comments, but alluded to the possibility of Vazquez coming on board.
“When we have something to tell you, you’ll be informed. What’s important is the match against Valencia and what we have to say, we will say at the appropriate time.”
