Arrasate sacked by Sociedad

San Sebastian, Spain (SportsNetwork.com) - Real Sociedad has dismissed manager Jagoba Arrasate as a result of the club's poor start to the La Liga campaign.

Sociedad resides in 19th place in the league after a 1-0 defeat to Malaga over the weekend, the club's sixth loss in 10 matches.

Arrasate's lone win in charge of Sociedad this season was a 4-2 victory over Real Madrid in August, while the club announced that Asier Santana and Imanol Alguacil will lead the club until a replacement is found.

Under Arrasate last season Sociedad finished seventh in La Liga, but lost key players Antoine Griezmann and Claudio Bravo in the offseason.
