Madrid - Colourful Granada coach Paco Jemez became the third
La Liga boss to lose his job already this season after failing to win any of
his six games in charge.
Jemez's constant outbursts, penchant for substituting
players in the first half and kamikaze approach to defending have made him one
of Spanish football's more controversial coaches.
"Granada CF have decided to bring to an end Paco
Jemez's time in charge of the team," the club said in a statement on
"After studying in detail the current situation and
results, the decision was taken unanimously."

A 3-1 defeat at Alaves sealed Jemez's fate at Granada, who
have taken just two points from their opening six games to sit joint bottom of
the table with newly promoted Osasuna.
Previously Jemez enjoyed a broadly successful four-year
spell in charge of Rayo Vallecano by keeping the small Madrid club in the top
flight for the longest stretch in their history before being relegated last
