Reigning Portuguese champions Porto on Wednesday ditched coach Paulo Fonseca following a poor run of form.
Third-placed Porto's 2-2 draw at Guimaraes on Sunday saw them drop to nine points behind leaders and bitter rivals Benfica.
They have won only three of their last seven league matches, picking up nine points less than Benfica during that period.
Fonseca, 41, will be replaced by the club's B team coach, Luis Castro, until a new full-time coach can be found, the club said in a statement to the stock exchange.
