Madrid, Nov 12: Spanish football club Real Betis have sacked coach Gustavo Poyet after just 11 games in charge and announced Victor Sanchez as his replacement. The announcement, which was made shortly before midnight on Friday, ended days of speculation over Poyet's future and also over who would be his replacement, reports Xinhua. A 0-2 defeat to Villarreal on November 6 looked to have sealed Poyet's fate, but the Uruguayan took training sessions early in the week while the club looked for a replacement and it was not until Friday that his departure was filly confirmed. Former Zaragoza player, Poyet, who had also played in England and coached English sides Brighton and Sunderland, was med Betis coach at the start of the summer. Despite a full pre-season with his players, he has never really been able to convince fans. The season kicked off with a 2-6 defeat away to Barcelo and although Betis were able to win in Valencia in the third round of matches, they have only won on two other occasions, while also losing 1-6 at home to Real Madrid in what was the worst home defeat in the club's history.
