Granada sack coach Jemez after winless start

28 September 2016, 18:24

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 Wednesday.

"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 season.

Valencia sacked Pako Ayestaran just four games into the season and Villarreal parted company with Marcelino before the campaign even began over disagreements with the club's board.
