Pellegrino sacked by Valencia

Mauricio Pellegrino has been sacked as coach of Valencia, the club have confirmed on their Twitter feed.

Pellegrino only took up the reins in May but the club has decided to dispense with his services after Saturday's 5-2 defeat against Real Sociedad at the Mestalla.

Los Che are currently 11th in the Primera Division standings but just four points off a Champions League place and have qualified for the knockout stage of Europe's premier club competition.

"We have been exchanging views, and we made the decision to dismiss Mauricio Pellegrino,'' president Manuel Llorente said.
