Struggling Recreativo Huelva sack coach Munoz

February 4, 2008

MADRID, Feb 4 (Reuters) - Recreativo Huelva have sacked coach Victor Munoz after a poor run of form, the Primera Liga club said on their website on Monday.

The Andalucian side lost 2-1 at home to regional rivals Sevilla on Sunday for their seventh league game without a win.

That result saw them slip to 19th in the 20-team league, one point from safety.

Munoz, who has coached Villarreal, Real Zaragoza and Panathinaikos among others, had been in the post since July.

He will be replaced by B team coach Manolo Zambrano, the club said.
