While Barcelona and Valencia continue to tango at the top of Spain’s first division, Alaves’ outlook is one of a much different tone.

The La Liga bottom-dwellers sacked manager Gianni de Biasi on Monday after the club went 3-0-5 in his eight matches in charge this season.

De Biasi took over Alaves in September after previous manager Luis Zubeldía lasted a little over one month on the job to start the 2017/18 La Liga campaign.

Overall, Alaves has gone through five managers since 2015, including Mauricio Pellegrino — who currently manages Premier League side Southampton.

The Babazorros currently sit dead last in La Liga on six points through the club’s opening 13 matches, scoring just seven goals in that stretch.
