New Malaga boss Bernd Schuster has revealed defender Martin Demichelis will not be signing a new contract with the club.
The 32-year-old central defender, whose current deal expired this summer, was offered an extension last week but, after negotiations with the new manager, it was decided the Argentine would be leaving La Rosaleda.
“Our offer has been answered,” Schuster told a press conference. “We would have liked him to continue as he is a respected and important part of this team. It seems that our ideas are different and we must accept that. Now we must find a replacement.”
Demichelis signed for Malaga in 2011 from Bayern Munich and has made 84 appearances for the Spanish side.
