Leganes have parted ways with coach Javier Aguirre following their relegation from La Liga, the Spanish club said on Monday.
Leganes, who took the relegation battle to the final day, suffered the drop following their 2-2 draw with title winners Real Madrid on Sunday.
"C.D Leganes and Javier Aguirre will not continue to be together after the end of the 2019/20 season," the club said in a statement.
“The club wants to thank the Mexican manager for his work in the last months in which he managed to take the team one goal away from the survival.”
Aguirre, 61, was hired in November when Leganes stood at the bottom of the table and the Mexican coach led them to seven wins during his 26 games in charge.
