Last-place Zaragoza fires coach Javier Aguirre

Last-place Zaragoza fires coach Javier Aguirre

Zaragoza says it has reached an agreement with Javier Aguirre to terminate the Mexican coach's contract.
Aguirre took over the heavily indebted Spanish club last season and managed to keep it in the first division. But Aguirre hasn't had much success this season with Zaragoza last in the standings with 10 points from 16 games.
Zaragoza says "the sporting situation the Aragon club found itself in meant an urgent change was needed, which is why this agreement was reached."
Aguirre was scheduled to speak at a news conference on Friday, when the club would likely announce its coaching plans for the remainder of the season.
Zaragoza was also recently eliminated from the Copa del Rey by second division Alcorcon.
