Deportivo de la Coruña confirmed this morning that Victor Sánchez del Amo will no longer coach at Riazor despite recently signing a contract extension that would have him remain at the Galician side through to 2017.

The poor season run-in and the dressing room problems at the Galician outfit have been key factors in the club taking the decision. A comunique from the club issued this morning stated: "The board of directors at Real Club Deportivo have made the decision to terminate the contract of Víctor Sánchez del Amo como entrenador del equipo. El Club quiere agradecer al técnico su apuesta, dedicación, esfuerzo y profesionalidad durante la etapa que ha dirigido al equipo en Primera División".

Club president Tino Fernández will hold a press conference later this evening where it's expected he will go into more detail surrounding dismissal.
