3. SPAIN: Two coaches fired in 24 hours
In the space of 24 hours, two La Liga clubs fired their coaches.
Last-place Gimnastic Tarragona dropped Julio
Cesar Sunday evening after its 3-2 defeat at home to Real
Mallorca. On Monday, Athletic Bilbao dumped Felix Sarriugarte after its 3-1
loss at home to Sevilla left it third from last in the La Liga
standings. Sarriugarte had only been promoted from the Athletic reserve
team last summer to replace the former Spain coach Javier Clemente as head coach.
Last month, Real Sociedad, Athletic's Basque rival, made the first
coaching change of the Spanish season when it fired Jose Mari Bakero and replaced him
Spain's tally of three fired coaches matches that of Italy's Serie A.
Winless Ascoli is looking for a coach to replace Attilio Tesser following a third
straight defeat suffered over the weekend. Torino replaced Giovanni De Biasi with Alberto Zaccheroni few days
before the first Serie A opener, while Chievo Verona, also seeking its
first win, dropped Giuseppe Pillon and
replaced him with Luigi Del Neri
after six games.

Only one manager has been replaced in England's Premier League so far
this season. Les Reed took
over at Charlton, succeeding Iain
Dowie. At Hannover, the longtime German home of American Steve
Cherundolo, Coach Peter Neururer was sacked and replaced by Dieter Hecking. In France,
struggling Monaco fired Hungarian Laszlo
Boloni and replaced him with
Laurent Banide. Boloni wasn't unemployed for a long time. In
early November, he was named Hungarian national team coach.
