Madrid - Argentine coach Mauricio Pellegrino announced on Monday he will not remain in charge of La Liga side Alaves next season.

Alaves lost out 3-1 to Barcelona in Pellegrino's last game in charge in the Copa del Rey final on Saturday.

Pellegrino led Alaves to an impressive ninth-placed finish in their first season back in the Spanish top flight for a decade.
