Athletic Bilbao sacks coach after winless streak

Bilbao (Spain), Dec 4 (IANS) Spanish La Liga side Athletic Bilbao on Tuesday sacked its head coach Eduardo Berizzo in the light of the club’s woeful track record in the season so far.

The club said the manager, who was appointed to lead the first team in May, would be replaced by coach Gaizka Garitano, reports Efe news.
