Clemente sacked by Real Murcia

Former Spain coach Javier Clemente has been sacked as boss of Spanish second division side Real Murcia. "It was very easy to tell Clemente he wasn't going to be the coach any more, and he was very understanding of the situation," new Murcia president Juan Guillamon told reporters. Murcia are 20th in the 22-team second division after being relegated from the top flight in May. Clemente, who took charge of Murcia in March, was Spain coach between 1992 and 1998, and coached Serbia from 2006 to last year.
