“Real Sociedad have decided to rescind the contract of first-team coach Asier Garitano,” the club said in a statement on their website. They went on to thank Garitano for “all his contribution, professionalism and dedication”.
Garitano arrived in San Sebastian last summer from Leganes. In 17 league games, he won five and lost eight, including the last four. He leaves with the club four points above the relegation zone.
