"After meeting with the president, I have decided not to continue," Gracia told a news conference on Wednesday.

"I would like to stay here my whole life but circumstances dictate that it would not be positive for the club, or for me, if I stayed."

Valladolid said on their website (www.realvalladolid.es) that Martinez's contract had contained a clause that meant he would automatically leave if the club were relegated.
