"Villarreal has decided to rescind Javi Callejas contract as first-team coach. The club would like to thank the coach for his work, dedication and professionalism since taking over last season," read a club statement.

His successor has not yet been named, however, the club have suggested one will be appointed "in the coming hours".

Villareal are 17th in La Liga and have just three wins from their 15 games so far this season.
