Mendilibar’s side started the current campaign with three consecutive losses, leaving Osasuna at the foot of Spain’s top-flight standings.

Club president Miguel Archanco says he has "four coaches in the pipeline'' to replace Mendilibar, and is looking for "a young, committed coach."

Assistant coach Alfredo Sanchez will take over on a temporary basis from Mendilibar, who was appointed head coach of the club in February 2011.
