Atletico Madrid were dumped out of the King's Cup 3-1 on
aggregate by third-tier Albacete on Wednesday in what may prove to be a
humiliating swan song for embattled coach Gregorio Manzano.
On a night of last-32, second leg upsets, Atletico's struggling La Liga
rivals Villarreal also suffered the ignominy of being eliminated by
third-tier opposition when they fell 2-0 at home to Mirandes to exit 3-1
The reverse at the Madrigal prompted the departure of coach Juan Carlos
Garrido, with the club hovering just above the relegation places in the
league following a spate of injuries to key players.
