New Celta de Vigo coach Miguel Cardoso will look to establish a winning record for his so-far short tenure at the Galician club, as Foot Mercato reports, as well as take his club — which appeared to be relegation-bound when he took over just one month ago — into a European qualification spot, at least for a day, when Celticos host a team still hovering just above the drop zone in CD Leganes in a match that will live stream Friday from Vigo.

Since taking over the club, the Portuguese manager — who was hired by Celta de Vigo after a brief, eight-game stint at Nantes in the French Ligue 1, as Inquisitr noted, has registered a pair of wins and a pair of defeats — with both losses coming to Real Sociedad, in the league and in a Copa del Rey match. Meanwhile, the Galicians defeated last-place CD Huesca and Villereal, who sit just above the relegation tier, on goal difference.

Celta de Vigo are paced by 21-year-old midfielder Brais Mendez, who has scored four league goals in 12 matches — and also scored the winner in his national team debut when Spain topped Bosnia 1-0 in November. But according to Football Espana, the rising star is already a target of Premier League club Leicester City, who reportedly do not see the $28 million release fee in his Celta de Vigo contract, which runs through 2021, as an obstacle.
