Jose Marcelo Ferreira “Ze Maria” has been sacked as KF Tirana head coach over poor performance.
The former Gor Mahia coach guided the team back to Albanian Super League but has found the going tough eight matches into the topflight.
Tirana have only managed two wins in eight outings and are currently placed seventh in the 10-team league.
“There are times when divorce is needed in case a marriage doesn’t get on well and it’s high time we divorced,” the former Brazil left back said.
“We will see as time goes by whether the problem was mine or the president’s. I was the problem and really wish the team to grow,” he added.
Ze Maria left Gor unceremoniously mid 2016 to take up the Tirana job.
He tagged along two K’Ogalo players, Musa Mohammed and Kenneth Muguna but they terminated they contracts after about six months.
Musa has since moved to Nkana of Zambia while Miguna has rejoined Gor.
