Third A-League manager moved on
Markus Babbel has been sacked as the coach of the Western Sydney Wanderers.
Babbel becomes the third A-League coach in a space of a week to be moved on following the departures of Ernie Merrick from Newcastle and Marco Kurz from Melbourne Victory.
Wanderers Chairman Paul Lederer said it was unfortunate that they needed to take this course of action.
“However we firmly believe that we have a great squad and the results are most definitely not reflective of the ability of the players at this club and certainly do not reflect the aspirations of the Western Sydney Wanderers Football Club. Lederer said.
“We have total faith in the group of players here at the Wanderers and look forward to pushing on with renewed vigour towards the finals series.”
Jean Paul de Marigny has been appointed as caretaker coach, supported by assistant coach Labinot Haliti, while the club commences its search for a new head coach.
