Real Zaragoza sack Javier Aguirre


Javier Aguirre is no longer Coach of Real Zaragoza after it was revealed late on Thursday night that Agapito Iglesias, President and major shareholder of the club, had reached an agreement with the Mexican for the termination of his contract, which runs out on June 30, 2012.

A statement issued by the club read: “Real Zaragoza wants to thank Javier Aguirre for the professionalism and dedication he has shown during his time as Coach of the first-team squad. However, the sporting situation in which we find ourselves has forced an urgent change of direction, so we have reached this agreement with him.” It added: “We wish Javier Aguirre every success in his professional future and at the same time want to praise the gentlemanly attitude and example he has shown during his tenure.”

Zaragoza are currently bottom of La Liga and five points from safety having won just two games all season, the last of them a 2-0 victory over Real Sociedad in mid-October, and have taken only one point from the last 27 on offer. There has also been a Copa del Rey exit at the hands of La Segunda side Alcorc
