SAN SEBASTIAN, Spain (AP) — Real Sociedad has fired coach Jagoba Arrasate with the Basque club struggling in the Spanish league.

Sociedad made the announcement a day after losing 1-0 at home to Malaga, leaving it with one win through 10 rounds. That win was a 4-2 comeback to beat current leader Real Madrid in round two.

Sociedad also failed to advance from a playoff to the Europa League group phase to start its disappointing season.

Arrasate was in his second season in charge of Sociedad.

The club did not immediately name his replacement.
