El Nacional sack coach Celico after drubbing

Ecuadorian side El Nacional have sacked coach Jorge Celico following their 5-0 defeat at the hands of Nacional in the Copa Libertadores.

The Quito-based side were hammered by their Paraguayan opponents in the first leg of the Copa Libertadores and the board decided to act quickly and remove Celico from his position.

"The defeat made us take this decision. The result was too heavy for the history of the club," said El Nacional president Rodrigo Bohorquez to Sonorama radio station.

Juan Carlos Burbano has been placeD in charge on a temporary basis ahead of the start of the Campeonato Nacional.
