Argentine giants Boca Juniors sacked their record title-winning coach Carlos Bianchi on Thursday after a disappointing third spell in charge.

The 65-year-old, who took over 18 months ago after steering Boca to a string of domestic and international titles a decade earlier, presided over 26 wins and 26 losses in 74 matches including three defeats in their first four league games this season.

Bianchi, a former Velez Sarsfield, Stade Reims, Paris St Germain and Argentina striker, had a contract until December 2015.
