LA LIGA: Deportivo La Coruna Sack Cristobal Parralo
Cristobal Parralo has been fired as Deportivo La Coruna coach after less than four months in charge of the Spanish side.
His sack came following Friday’s 5-0 hammering of the club by Real Sociedad.
Cristobal was promoted from the club’s reserve team in October following the dismissal of Pepe Mel, but he has been unable to preside over an improvement in their fortunes.
Deportivo won just two of the 13 LaLiga games since Cristobal came on board.
A 7-1 demolition by Real Madrid was followed by a disappointing 2-2 draw at home to fellow strugglers Levante, who fought back from 2-0 down to rescue a point.
And Friday’s 5-0 loss at Real Sociedad – who themselves had lost four in a row beforehand – proved the final straw, as former Spain international Cristobal leaves Deportivo third from bottom.
