Gus Poyet sacked as Real Betis coach, replaced by former Real Madrid midfielder Victor Sanchez


Gus Poyet had signed a two-year deal with Betis in May but the former Sunderland and AEK Athens boss, had overseen four losses in Betis’ past five games.


The form slump had seen the club fall to 14th in LaLiga and supporters vowing to boycott games until Poyet’s dismissal, which arrived on Saturday.

Victor Sanchez, whose last job was at the helm of Olympiacos, played for Madrid during the 1990s and was an eight-time Spain international.

His first game in charge will be a clash at home to Las Palmas on Friday.
