Sevilla have sacked Argentine coach Jorge Sampaoli with the club two points above the La Liga relegation zone.
The former Chile and Argentina coach, 63, joined Sevilla in October for a second stint in charge.
They have lost five of their past seven matches and are currently 14th in the table.
However, they have made it into the quarter-finals of the Europa League and will face Manchester United over two legs next month.
Sampaoli's last game in charge was a 2-0 defeat by fellow strugglers Getafe which leaves them on on 28 points with 12 games left.
Sevilla said they are "already working on recruiting a new coach as soon as possible".
Their first game after the international break is at 15th-placed Cadiz on Saturday, 1 April.
