Hard news from the direction of Oscar Garcia, who lost his daughter who passed away after a long struggle with a serious illness. Garcia’s former team, Maccabi Tel Aviv, consoled: “The Maccabi Tel Aviv family sends its deepest condolences to former coach Oscar Garcia and his family following the death of their daughter. The loss of a child is heartbreaking, at this difficult moment we wish you to know no more sorrow.”
Oscar Garcia arrived in the Premier League in the summer of 2012, along with Jordi Cruyff, and in the 2012/13 season he led the Yellows to their first championship in a decade and the first championship in the Mitch Goldhar era. That summer, Garcia left for Brighton, but a year later he returned for another term in Israel, which ended very quickly following Operation “Tzuk Eitan”. Since then, the 49-year-old Garcia managed to coach Watford, Red Bull Salzburg, Saint Etienne, Olympiakos, Celta Vigo and Reims, from which he was fired last month.
