Former Inter striker Crespo sacked by Argentine club Banfield

Hernan Crespo has been sacked by Banfield after just nine months in charge, the club announced on Monday.

Banfield part ways with head coach and Argentine great Crespo just five matches into the Superliga Argentina season.

Crespo, who signed an 18-month contract with Banfield in December, paying the price for overseeing only one win in five league games this term.
