Villarreal sack Coach Javier Calleja

Villarreal have sacked Coach Javier Calleja with the club sitting just one place above the relegation zone.

The 40-year-old replaced Fran Escriba in the hotseat in September 2017 and has led the club through 65 matches with a record of 25 victories, 18 draws and 22 draws.

Calleja took the Yellow Submarine to a top five finish last season but a concerning run of form this campaign has left the club languishing in 17th place in the campaign.

Villarreal have won just three of their 15 league games this season and have lost each of their last two league games, including Saturday’s 3-2 defeat at home to Celta Vigo.
