He is the sixth manager to be fired since Singapore billionaire Peter Lim bought the club in 2014, and Sanchez, appointed in January, became the sixth sports director to resign over the same period.

According to reports in Spain, Sanchez resigned shortly after Selades’s dismissal on Monday, previously informing the team that their manager would still be responsible for playing Wednesday against Athletic Bilbao.
