La Liga: Pellegrino and Leganes part ways
La Liga side Leganes has parted company with Mauricio Pellegrino following a 2-0 loss to Getafe, which continued a winless start to the season.
Los Pepineros have collected just two points from their opening nine games and are currently seven points adrift of 17th-placed Celta Vigo in the league.
The former Southampton, Alaves and Valencia manager was appointed at the start of last season and guided Leganes to survival and a respectable 13th in La Liga.
But results took a turn for the worse at the beginning of this campaign and the club issued a statement on Monday on the Argentine’s future.
