Alaves coach Luis Zubeldia has become the first manager to be fired this season in the Spanish league. The former Argentine player was fired by Alaves on Sunday after a 3-0 home loss to Villarreal, its fourth straight defeat that left it in last place with no goals scored. Alaves said that Javier Cabello would be its interim coach. Zubeldia had previously coached several clubs in Latin America, including most recently Colombia side Independiente Medellin.
