MADRID - Almeria have sacked coach Jose
Luis Oltra and are looking for a replacement to help them avoid
relegation, the Spanish club said on Tuesday.
The Andalusians, who play at La Liga leaders Barcelona on
Saturday, are bottom of the standings with 26 points from 30
matches and lost 3-1 at home to Athletic Bilbao on Monday.
"The club has taken this decision on the basis that a change
is needed in the dynamic of the team, given that there is still
a chance of securing survival," Almeria said in a statement on
Oltra, who was appointed at the end of November to replace
the sacked Juan Manuel Lillo and led the club to the semi-finals
of the King's Cup, their best-ever showing, will bid farewell to
the squad on Wednesday.
"By then the club hopes to already have a new coach who will
be on the Almeria bench next Saturday at the Nou Camp," the
