Ex-Liverpool defender Hyypia sacked as Bayer Leverkusen coach

Former Liverpool defender Sami Hyypia has been sacked by Bayer Leverkusen.

The Bundesliga club says in a statement that the former Liverpool defender is being released 'with immediate effect' following Friday's 2-1 loss at relegation-threatened Hamburger SV.

Leverkusen previously drew with bottom side Eintracht Braunschweig and is in danger of losing fourth place with both Wolfsburg and Borussia Moenchengladbach in a position to overtake on Saturday.
