Almeria sack coach Lillo after Barca thrashing

Almeria have sacked coach Juan Manuel Lillo in the wake of the 8-0 home defeat at the hands of Barcelona.

The club said on its website the decision was taken right after the match at Juegos Mediterraneos Stadium due to "the poor results in the last rounds of the championship." The loss left Almeria rooted in the bottom three of the Primera Division with just one win and nine points from their opening 12 games.

Lillo did recently guide Almeria into the last-16 of the Copa del Rey, though, his side beating La Liga rivals Real Sociedad home and away to record a 5-3 aggregate victory.

The 45-year-old took over as coach of Almeria last December following the sacking of Hugo Sanchez and helped the Andalusian side finish the campaign in 13th place.
