Granada parts ways with Anquela

Granada fired manager Juan Antonio Anquela on Wednesday with the club hovering just above the relegation zone.

Anquela's last match with the team came Monday in a 3-0 defeat against Sevilla that leaves the club two points above 18th-place Osasuna.

"The board of Granada CF has this morning removed the coach Juan Antonio Anquela," said a statement on the club's website.

"The club is now working to hire a new coach. Granada thanks Anquela for his involvement and work and wish him every success in his future career."

Anquela joined Granada over the summer from lower-division side Alcorcon.
