Atletico Madrid fires coach Resino

Spanish Primera Liga club Atletico Madrid has fired coach Abel Resino.

The team announced the decision in a brief statement on its Web site on Friday.

Atletico has won only one of its past 10 games and lies in 15th place in the Spanish league.

A 4-0 Champions League defeat at Chelsea on Wednesday left Atletico in last place in Group D.

Resino had been coach since February, when he replaced Javier Aguirre.
