BREAKING: #Besiktas Sack Manager Fernando Santos



BREAKING: #Besiktas Sack Manager Fernando Santos—The Genius Media Nigeria reports that Turkish giants Besiktas have announced the departure of manager Fernando Santos after just three months in the job following a poor run of results.

This was made known via the official instagram page of the club

Saturday’s 1-1 home draw with Samsunspor left Besiktas without a win in their last five Super Lig matches, meaning their chances of European qualification have been thrown into doubt.

Santos was hired in January with the team 6th in the standings and while league position has risen to 4th, the Black Eagles have failed to impress during his tenure. Besiktas are a remarkable 36 points off fierce rivals and Super Lig leaders Galatasaray, while their advantage over Kasimpasa for the final Europa Conference League place is just two points.

The club wrote:

A Statement from Our Club

We have parted ways with Coach Fernando Santos.

We thank Santos for his service and wish him well in his future life.

Serdar Topraktepe will assume the Technical Responsibility of our Football A Team until the end of the season.

Sincerely yours truly.

Beşiktaş JK
