TS Galaxy have announced the departure of coach Owen Da Gama with immediate effect due to a string of poor results.
Galaxy are currently bottom of the DStv Premiership log with just two points from five matches, without a victory.
In a statement by the club on Monday, club President Tim Sukazi said the club was left with no choice but to let go of Da Gama.
“This is one of those bitter pills that we had to swallow as a Club given the kind of contribution that Coach Owen has made to our Club,” read the statement.
Unfortunately, we have had a faulty start to the season and with football being a result-driven business, decisions like this are bound to be taken at some point or another if results aren’t forthcoming. Our new focus from now on is to get the team back on track.”
Assistant coach Shaun Bartlett will take over the reins in an interim capacity until a final decision on the head coach is made.
