Granada sacks coach Anquela

31 January 2013-PA Sport

Granada has sacked coach Juan Antonio Anquela with the club teetering above the relegation zone.

A 3-0 loss away to Sevilla left Granada just two points above the bottom three ahead of a daunting run of fixtures that includes meetings with Real Madrid and Barcelona in the next three matches.

"The board of Granada CF has this morning removed the coach Juan Antonio Anquela," a statement on the club's website read.

"The club is now working to hire a new coach. Granada CF thank Anquela for his involvement and work and wish him every success in his future career."

Anquela joined Granada in the northern summer after guiding Alcorcon into the Segunda Division.

The side had finished 17th in the table last year under Abel Resino in its first season after promotion.
