VALENCIA, Spain (AP) - Spanish club Levante has named Lucas Alcaraz to replace Jose Mendilibar after firing the coach earlier on Tuesday.

Mendilibar replaced Joaquin Caparros this season but failed to maintain the same level of play, with the team scoring a league-low four goals through eight rounds and sitting next-to-last in the standings.

Alcaraz, 48, coached Granada last season. The 48-year-old Spaniard has coached several other sides in a 20-year career.

Mendilibar is the second coach to be fired from Spain’s top division this week, his departure announced just hours after last-place Cordoba replaced Albert Ferrer with Miroslav Djukic on Monday.
