Stevenage sack their manager and name ex-England women’s boss as caretaker

Stevenage have this morning announced the sacking of first team manager Dino Maamria after what has turned out to be a worrying start ti the season.

They currently sit second from bottom of the League Two table and have not won any of the seven league matches they have played this season.

It took them six league games to score their first goal of the season, they then scored another two in what was Maamria’s final game, a 4-2 at Cheltenham Town on Saturday.

The club said on their website: “Stevenage FC have today called an end to Dino Maamria’s 18 month reign as manager of the Club…

“Following a strong run of results at the end of the 2018/19 season, where Stevenage finished the season in 10th place with 6 wins from the final 7 games, missing the Play-Offs by 1 point, the Club have not recorded a win so far this season and currently sit 23rd place in League Two.

“Mark Sampson will assume control of the team in a Caretaker role, assisted by newly appointed U18 manager Alex Revell, until further notice.

Sampson was appointed as a coach at the club from the start of the season, becoming his first job in football since he was sacked as England Women’s boss by the FA in September 2017 due to “clear evidence of inappropriate and unacceptable behaviour” with female players when he was the boss at Bristol Academy.

He had also been the focus of bullying and racism claims made by Eni Aluko and then Drew Spence.

 

After finding out that Stevenage have sacked manager Dino Maamria as manager, fans took to give their reaction with some calling it the right decision and others named one man they hope won’t get appointed – see those tweets on the next page.
