Besiktas part ways with manager Sergen Yalcin for poor results
49-year-old was Besiktas' head coach for almost 2 years
The Istanbul club said in a statement that Besiktas parted ways with 49-year-old Yalcin on a mutual consent and thanked the Turkish head coach for local achievements including the 2021 Turkish Super Lig title.
It also wished Yalcin best for the rest of his career.
A former Besiktas and Turkey attacking midfielder, Yalcin was hired by the Black Eagles on Jan. 29, 2020 to manage the senior team for nearly two years.
Last season, Yalcin's men did double, winning both the Super Lig and Turkish Cup trophy.
This season Besiktas, guided by Yalcin, displayed a poor run in both the Turkish league and UEFA Champions League.
Besiktas are now desperate for the title race in the 2021-22 domestic campaign as they are in the ninth spot with 21 points in 15 Super Lig matches.
They are currently 18 points behind the leaders Trabzonspor.
On Tuesday, Besiktas were handed a devastating loss by Borussia Dortmund in a Champions League match held in Germany.
Borussia Dortmund trounced Besiktas 5-0 at Signal Iduna Park as the Turkish side ended the Group C with zero points.
