Real Betis has sacked Pepe Mel as a result of the club’s poor form which has given them a ride to the bottom of the La Liga after fifteen matches so far this season
“The board of directors, after extensive deliberation, has decided to dispense with the services of Pepe Mel as coach of Real Betis”,Club president Miguel Guillen told the club’s website.
“It is a sad and painful decision with the sole objective of ending the run of poor results that we have been suffering for many weeks”, he added.
Betis who finished seventh last season are not taking any chances as they have immediately replaced Mel with former Villareal manager, Juan Carlos Garrido
Betis have won only two (2) La Liga matches this season and have only ten points.
