MEXICO CITY, Oct. 4 (Xinhua) -- Pumas UNAM has parted ways with Argentine manager Andres Lillini amid a poor run of results, the Mexican top-flight club said on Tuesday.

The announcement came four days after Pumas suffered a 3-1 away defeat to Juarez in the last game of the Liga MX regular season.

The result left the Mexico City-based club 16th in the 20-team standings, five points shy of a playoff spot.

"We recognize [Lillini's] professionalism and dedication throughout the years he worked at the club, first as a [youth] director and then as coach of the first team," read a statement on the club's official website.

In his two years in charge, Lillini guided Pumas to 34 wins, 38 draws and 35 losses.
