Coach Marcelino has parted ways with Villarreal a week ahead of their Champions League playoff first leg, the Spanish club confirmed in a statement on Tuesday.

The 50-year-old joined Villarreal in January, 2013, following the team's relegation the season before and guided them back to La Liga. Marcelino also took the team to the Europa League semi-finals last season.

The former Sevilla coach left after three-and-a-half seasons at the helm having secured a fourth-placed finish and a return to the Champions League last season.

"In the coming hours we will announce a replacement on an interim or permanent basis."
