Valladolid: Miroslav Djukic will step down as coach of Spanish club Valladolid at the end of the season.

The Serb says he is leaving to seek "another challenge" after helping the team earn promotion last season and avoid any relegation scares in its return this season.

Djukic, who had one year left on his contract, says "I am not sure where I am heading." His last game with Valladolid will be on Saturday when the team visits Mallorca in the final round of the season.
