Real Sociedad’s Jose Mari Bakero has become the first coach in the Spanish first division to be sacked this season.
The former Spanish international was sacked after the 4-1 Copa Del Rey defeat to second division Malaga earlier this week.
Sociedad are bottom of La Liga with just two points from seven matches.
“The board have decided to end the contract of Jose Mari Bakero,” Real announced on their website.
Bakero succeeded Gonzalo Arconada in March this year and he helped them to escape relegation.
