Eduardo Berizzo to leave Celta Vigo as coach after Real Sociedad match

MADRID -- Celta Vigo have announced that Eduardo Berizzo will coach the team for the last time on Sunday against Real Sociedad.

In a statement, Celta said they "can only show its gratitude for his hard work, commitment and passion [during] one of the most brilliant periods we have ever had."

The 47-year-old, whose contract expires at the end of this season, has not commented on his future plans.

Celta have not said who will replace Berizzo.

A former Celta defender, Berizzo returned as their manager in 2014 after Luis Enrique's departure for Barcelona.

Berizzo maintained their attacking style and, despite losing top talents Manuel "Nolito" Agudo and Fabian Orellana, led the team to the Europa League semifinals where they lost to Manchester United.

Celta have also reached the Copa del Rey semifinals for the last two seasons.
