Modena (Italy), March 27 (IANS) Former Argentina striker Hernan Crespo has been fired from his position as the head coach of Serie B outfit Modena.

He was given a contract in June 2015 with Modena struggling in the league. But the former forward could not revive the team even with all his experience.

“Modena FC announces that coach Hernan Crespo has been relieved of his duties as first-team manager,” a club statement read on Saturday.

“The club wishes to thank the coach for his efforts during his employment and would like to wish him the best professional fortunes.”

Modena are currently 18th in the points table and are one point away from relegation with nine games still to go.

Crespo had been on a one-year contract with the option for an additional two years.
