Deportivo La Coruna have sacked boss Victor Sanchez after a disappointing end to their season in La Liga.

Sanchez, 40, signed a contract extension in January to remain in charge until the end of next season.

However, Deportivo won just two of their last 22 league games and were beaten 8-0 at home by Barcelona on 20 April as they finished 15th.

Former Spain and Real Madrid midfielder Sanchez was in charge of Deportivo for 13 months.
