Deportivo sack manager Pepe Mel after poor start to the season
Deportivo La Coruna have demised manager Pepe Mel on Tuesday after a poor start to the Liga season and have appointed B team coach Cristobal Parralo in his place until the end of the current campaign.
Mel, who had a brief stint at Premier League club West Brom in 2014, is the fifth coach to be dismissed by president Tino Fernandez since he took over in 2014.
“The club want to thank the Madrid-born coach and his staff for their dedication, effort and professionalism which they showed during the time they were in charge of the first team squad,’ Deportivo said in a statement.
