Guinea's Horoya champion dismissed his Franco-Portuguese coach Didier Gomes da Rosa for failing to reach the African Champions League goal of reaching the semi-finals.
They reached the quarterfinals of the last two editions, the furthest they reached in the Champions League, but they were eliminated from the competition before the group stage.
The dismissal of Gomes comes less than eight months after he replaced Patrice Neveu who is now coach of Gabon.
"As you just learned, we held a meeting where we decided to fire coach Gomes Da Rosa," confirmed Soufiane Souare, President of Horoya, on the club's website.
"When he came, he was asked to take us to the semi-finals of the Champions League, but despite the investments, he could not do it."
"We were not happy with his work because we saw the deterioration of our game. We were not happy with the results," he added.
Two local coaches, Sekou Soumah and Issiaga Fadiga, were named to lead the team until Gomes was replaced.
Former coach of clubs in Rwanda, Cameroon and Algeria, Gomes has already qualified Horoya for the group stage of the second division African Confederation Cup.
Horoya is currently second in the Guinean league with goals behind CI Kamsar.
