MADRID (AP) — Real Sociedad has fired coach Asier Garitano and replaced him with reserve-team manager Imanol Alguacil, the Spanish top-flight club said on Wednesday.
Sociedad let Garitano go after four consecutive losses left the side from the Basque Country 15th in the 20-team league.
Garitano took over in the offseason after impressing with Leganes.
Alguacil also briefly coached Sociedad at the end of last season when he replaced Eusebio Sacristan, guiding the team to five wins, a draw and three losses.
