Real Zaragoza have sacked coach Paco Flores in the wake of Sunday’s 4-1 defeat at Deportivo La Coruna.

The club acted after a defeat which leaves the club in 18th position in La Liga. Flores successor has been confirmed as former Villarreal boss Victor Munoz.

Zaragoza have won just one of their last eight league matches and SUnday’s defeat saw them drop into the relegation zone.
