MADRID - Levante coach Luis Garcia has
rescinded his contract, the La Liga club said on Tuesday, as
local media reported that he was poised to sign for Getafe.
"Luis Garcia, coach of Levante the past three seasons, has
today cut his ties with our club," Valencia-based Levante said
in a statement on their website.
Garcia won plaudits for preserving tiny Levante's top-flight
status last season, their first back in the primera division,
while Madrid-based Getafe let coach Michel go after narrowly
"We are going to offer him (Garcia) a three-year project,"
Getafe President Angel Torres was quoted as saying in Spanish
media on Tuesday.
"He is a young coach with character and he has done things
very well at Levante."
Local media reported Garcia had agreed to pay Levante one
million euros to end his contract.
