MADRID, Oct 8 (Reuters) Levante sacked coach Abel Resino today after their 3-0 defeat away to Real Zaragoza on the weekend left them rooted to the foot of the Primera Liga.
''After the recent run of negative results the club have decided to change the person on the bench,'' Levante said in a statement on their Web site (www.levanteud.com) Resino replaced Juan Ramon Lopez Caro in January and steered the side away from the relegation places to 15th in the table last season.
But they have had a poor start to the new campaign collecting just one point from their opening seven league games.
A successor has not yet been named.
