Clarence Seedorf is set to take the vacant Deportivo La Coruna role, after the club sacked Cristobal Parralo on Sunday.
Friday evening’s 5-0 thumping at the hands of Real Sociedad was the final nail in the coffin for owners of the Galician side, seeing them slip back into the relegation places and sit three points from safety.
Cristobal was only promoted from the B team in October to take over at the club, but nine defeats and three wins has seen him lose his job.
Former Real Sociedad boss Martin Lasarte was heavily linked with the role, but his rejection has seen the Riazor outfit look towards former Dutch international Seedorf.
Multiple reports in Spanish press claim the four-time Champions League winner will take charge immediately, after leaving his role at Chinese side Shenzhen FC at the end of last year.
The Dutchman ended his glittering playing days in 2014, before taking a short term role as boss at former club Milan in Italy, where he lasted just 22 days with a win percentage of 50%.
His time spent with Chinese side Shenzhen was also less than flaterring, securing just four wins in his 14 games in charge before his aptly relieved of his duties.
