LA LIGA: Sevilla Sacks Coach
There seems to be a competition across the top leagues in Europe on who does it better as far as sacking coaches are concerned.
In the Premier League, the sixth coach, Paul Clement was sacked few days back by Swansea City and now the managerial casualties in the Spanish La Liga has also increased as Eduardo Berizzo has been fired as Sevilla coach.
The former Celta Vigo boss was only appointed in June following Jorge Sampaoli's decision to pitch his tent with Argentina's national team.
Expectations were high at the start of the season after the squad received an estimated €65million of investment, but Berizzo struggled to make his appointment count and a board meeting on Friday confirmed the former River Plate defender's fate.
A statement shortly after the conclusion of the meeting read: "The Board of Directors of Sevilla FC, who met this Friday, December 22, has taken the decision to dismiss the coach of the first team, Eduardo Berizzo, due to the team's bad run."
Sevilla also confirmed that they have already started discussions in an attempt to hire Berizzo's successor, with Javi Gracia, Luis Enrique and Laurent Blanc thought to be among the favourites.
Sevilla still are occupying fifth spot in the LaLiga and have qualified for the knockout phase of the Champions League.
