TS Galaxy announced the sacking of coach Owen Da Gama with immediate effect on Monday. This follows a thread of poor results to the start of the DSTv Premiership.
The club wrote in a statement: “Mr Da Gama took over the coaching reins at TS Galaxy Football Club in January, but the Rockets endured turbulent times since the start of the DSTv Premiership in the current season.”
Galaxy also confirmed that assistant coach Shaun Bartlett will take over as an interim coach.
“It’s always disappointing when a colleague is relieved of their duties, Bartlett said.
“I’ve been requested by the club to take over as interim coach to see how we can turn things around
“For me, it’s to build on what coach Owen started here and try to get the best of the players going forward.
“Coach Owen started quite a few good things here,, and we’ve got to make sure that we can build on that and not disregard anything that he’s done here.”
