Real Betis sack Gus Poyet, bring in Victor Sanchez

Real Betis sack Gus Poyet after less than four months in charge and bring in former Deportivo La Coruna head coach Victor Sanchez.

Real Betis have dismissed Gus Poyet after less than four months in charge and replaced him with former Deportivo La Coruna head coach Victor Sanchez.

Betis, who have taken just 11 points from 11 games under the Uruguayan, sit two points above the La Liga relegation zone.

"Real Betis have decided to bring Gustavo Poyet's tenure in charge of the first team to an end," said a Betis statement.

"The club would like to show its special gratitude for the dedication and effort of the Uruguayan coach and his coaching staff during this time and wish him them the best in the future."

Sanchez took charge of Deportivo in 2015, helping them to avoid relegation, but was sacked at the end of his second season after finishing 15th in the standings.
