Valladolid fires coach Mendilibar

VALLADOLID, Spain (AP) Valladolid has fired coach Jose Luis Mendilibar after the team picked up just three victories in its last 31 games.

Valladolid is 17th in the Spanish League standings — one point above the drop zone — following Sunday's 1-1 draw against Almeria, a result that led to Mendilibar's dismissal, according to a statement on the team's Web site Monday.

Reserve-team coach Onesimo Sanchez Gonzalez replaces Mendilibar.
