Struggling Spanish BBVA Primera Liga football club, Granada, sacked coach Abel Resino on Friday following a run of results which look certain to doom them to relegation to the second division (Liga Adelante).

Abel was sacked in the wake of Thursday’s 2-1 home defeat to Espanyol which leave Granada second from bottom of the league table with just 25 points from 34 matches.
Abel returned for what was his second spell at the club in mid-January to replace Joaquin Caparros, but after briefly rallying, the club has again suffered a run of poor results and has taken just one point from the last 8 matches.
That run included a 9-1 defeat away to Real Madrid at the start of April, which is Granada’s worst ever defeat in the Primera Liga.
“The results obtained in recent weeks have obliged the club to take this difficult decision. We know how difficult it is and how little time is left this season, but the club still believes in the chance of staying up and in the coming hours we will publish the coach who will lead the side until the end of the season,” confirmed a communique on the Granada website.
Whoever the new coach is, he will make his debut away to Getafe on Sunday.
Elsewhere Thursday saw the Spanish government on Thursday approve a decree which will lead to the collective negotiation of TV rights from Spain’s football clubs.
It is hoped this will lead to a fairer distribution of TV income rather than the current individual deals which see Real Madrid and Barcelona earn over 50 percent of the money paid to all of Spain’s clubs for TV rights. Enditem
