Escriba was dismissed on Monday with Villarreal 14th in La Liga after six games, having also lost to Levante and Real Sociedad, drawn with Espanyol and beaten Real Betis and Alaves.

The 52-year-old was appointed in August 2016 and in May renewed his contract to the end of this season.

"Villarreal have decided to terminate the contract of Fran Escriba as first-team coach," the club said in a statement.

"In the coming hours, the club will name who the new Villarreal coach will be."

Villarreal were promoted to Spain's top-flight in 1998 and 10 years later finished runners-up to Real Madrid in their best league campaign.

They suffered a shock relegation in 2012 but were immediately promoted the following year and have played in the Europa League each season since.
