Aston Villa have sacked manager Tim Sherwood after eight months in charge.

Villa are bottom of the Premier League following a 2-1 defeat by Swansea – the club’s sixth straight league loss – and Sunderland’s first win of the season.

The club said in a statement: “The board believes the results on the pitch were simply not good enough and that a change is imperative.”

In Spain, Levante have sacked coach Lucas Alcaraz after yet another La Liga loss on Sunday.

A 4-0 defeat at home to Real Sociedad left Levante bottom of the table after collecting just six points from their opening nine games.

A board meeting hours after the game led to Alcaraz, who was appointed in October last year, being sacked.
