Atletico Junior back coach Escobar, then fire him

BOGOTA, March 11 (Reuters) - Atletico Junior, bottom of the Colombian championship, fired coach Santiago Escobar on Tuesday, less than one day after telling him his job was safe.

Escobar, who had been at the helm for only seven games, took charge of training on Tuesday morning but learned afterwards that the club had changed their minds.

He was the first coaching victim of the year among Colombia's 18 first division clubs.

'Another extraordinary meeting was called on the subject and the decision was taken to end the contract with the technical staff,' Hernan Yunis, a member of the board, told reporters.

Yunis added that Uruguayan Julio Comesana was favourite to take over from Escobar place.
