DStv Premiership side TS Galaxy on Monday announced that head coach Owen Da Gama has been relieved from his duties with immediate effect.
Following a string of poor results at the start of this season's DStv Premiership, the club has severed ties with coach Owen Da Gama with immediate effect," a club statement said.
"Mr Da Gama took over the coaching reins at TS Galaxy Football Club in January, but the Rockets have endured turbulent times since the start of the DStv Premiership in the current season."
The Rockets also confirmed that assistant Shaun Bartlett will take over the coaching reigns on an interim basis.
Galaxy currently are rooted to the bottom of the league standings with two points from five games and are currently one of only two teams yet to register a league win.
"It's always disappointing when a fellow 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."
