The 4-2 loss on Sunday proved to be the manager's final match in charge of the Galician club

Celta Vigo have replaced head coach Antonio Mohamed with Miguel Cardoso in the wake of Sunday's 4-2 LaLiga defeat to Real Madrid.

Mohamed was appointed on a two-year deal in May but lasted only 13 games at Balaidos, winning just three times.

The defeat to Madrid on Sunday proved to be the final straw for the Celta hierarchy, who confirmed on Monday that Mohamed would not continue in the role.

Minutes later, the club confirmed the appointment of former Nantes boss Cardoso as their new coach.

In addition to his time with the Fench club, Cardoso has managed Portuguese side Rio Ave while also serving as an assistant at Shakhtar Donetsk, Deportivo La Coruna, Sporting CP, Braga, Academica and Beleneses.

Prior to his time with Nantes, which lasted just a matter of months, Cardoso broke the club record for points in a season with Rio Ave, leading the club to a fifth-place finish and 51 points last campaign.

Celta currently sit 14th in La Liga with 14 points through 12 matches to start the camapign.

Cardoso's first match will come against Real Sociedad on November 26.
