Oldham Athletic sack manager and quickly appoint new one

Oldham Athletic have this evening confirmed the sacking of first team manager Laurent Banide and since appointed Dino Maamria as his replacement.

Banide only lasted three months in the job after being appointed back in June, but has taken them to 21st in the League Two table.

The club statement read: “Oldham Athletic Football Club can announce that Laurent Banide and Bouziane Benaraibi have been relieved of their duties with immediate effect.

“The club would like to thank the Head Coach and his assistant for their efforts whilst at Boundary Park over the summer and wish them well for the future.

“An update on the new Head Coach will be made soon.”

On his arrival, Maamria said; “I’m hugely excited to join such an historical football club. The vision and ambition of the Chairman was a big factor and the first priority is to stabilise and unite this great football club.”

“I’m here to win football matches as well as improve, give confidence and belief to an already talented squad.”


Fans took to give their stunned reaction, some laughed and others stated who they wanted to replace him with – see those tweets on the next page.
