Trigger-happy Oldham Athletic continue their revolving door policy of managers as Harry Kewell becomes the latest victim

Harry Kewell has had his contract terminated by Oldham Athletic after seven months in charge, meaning the trigger-happy club are now searching for their 14th manager since Lee Johnson left in 2015.

In a Club Statement that was released on Sunday night, Oldham said:

Harry Kewell has today been relieved of his duties as Head Coach of Oldham Athletic.

Arriving in August 2020 he now leaves along with his assistant, Alan Maybury.

We would like to thank both for their efforts this season and wish them well in the future.

An announcement on a replacement will be communicated in due course with no further comment made until then.

Whether Oldham have already lined-up a replacement for Kewell is anyone's guess, while many fans have been left bewildered by the sudden sacking.

The former Crawley Town and Notts County boss replaced Dino Maamria back in August, when he became the seventh different manager under owner Abdallah Lemsagam.

Upon his appointment Kewell stated the need for stability at the club, however Oldham have reverted to type and opted to make a managerial change yet again, with the Australian departing with a record of 17 wins, six draws and 18 defeats from 41 games at the helm.

Remarkably that means Kewell has overseen more matches than 12 of the 13 appointments that came before him.

Kewell’s Oldham, 16th, may have conceded a league high 56 goals but up until his exit only Exeter City outscored his troops (49).
