Velasquez leaving Villarreal, probably for Elche

The nattily-dressed Velasquez is moving on.  Pity--we're losing the best coach we had last year!

Breaking news on twitter is that with Preciado almost certainly joining Villarreal as its new coach in the Segunda, Vlasquez is not going to remain and coach the B team in the Segunda B. It's expected Elche, and perhaps another Segunda A club or two as well, have him in mind for their coaching position.

I feel Villarreal were in a tough bind here; perhaps Velasquez was not quite ready for our first team, but Sr. Roig had to know that unless he got the job he would want to leave. Thoughts?
