LaLiga: New Celta Vigo coach mixes club up with Deportivo
Miguel Cardoso was left red-faced by an unfortunate slip of the tongue as he was unveiled by LaLiga club Celta Vigo on Tuesday.
Celta Vigo coach Miguel Cardoso got off to an embarrassing start at the struggling LaLiga club after mistakenly declaring he was taking over at their fierce local rivals Deportivo La Coruña.
New Celta boss previously had spell as Deportivo assistant
The Portuguese worked as an assistant at Celta's Galician neighbours Depor from 2012 to 2013 and got muddled up in his first news conference on Tuesday after being named as successor to Argentine Antonio Mohamed, who was sacked on Monday.
Cardoso looking forward to "new era at Deportivo... I mean Celta"
"I want to thank the president and the sporting director for showing faith in me and my coaching staff to start a new era at Deportivo... I mean Celta," said Cardoso, causing sporting director Felipe Miñambres, who sat next to him, to grimace.
Takes charge of team languishing in bottom half of LaLiga
Cardoso, who was coach at French side Nantes until 1 October, takes over a Celta side who are 14th in LaLiga, having lost 4-2 at home to Real Madrid on Sunday.
