Alaves coach Oliva lasts just one month

MADRID, Feb 16 (Reuters) - Alaves have dismissed coach Juan Carlos Oliva just over a month after he took charge.

Spanish news agency Europa Press said that Oliva was sacked by club president Dimitry Piterman after training, two days before Alaves play Real Madrid.

Piterman is scheduled to hold a news conference later on Thursday. Oliva was the Basque side's third coach of the season.

Oliva was appointed on Jan. 9 after Chuchi Cos quit when Alaves had slipped to the bottom of the Primera Liga after a 2-0 home defeat by Real Zaragoza.

He got off to a winning start with a 2-0 victory at Deportivo Coruna and although his team lost 2-0 away to league leaders Barcelona, they have not lost since.

Alaves are now in 15th place, two points clear of the relegation zone.

Rafael Montfort was appointed to the post in July. He was sacked after six weeks and Cos, who has steered the team to promotion the previous season, took his place only to throw in the towel in January.
