Neil Lennon, the manager of Super Eagles goalkeeper Francis Uzoho at Omonia Nicosia, has been fired after only seven months in charge.
The Cypriot club confirmed this following a 1-0 home defeat by Nea Salamis, which dropped them to seventh place in Division One.
Last week, Lennon almost led Omonia to a 0-0 draw against Manchester United in the Europa League, but they were defeated 1-0 by a late Scot McTominay strike.
The statement from Omonia read: “We inform you that we have agreed with Neil Lennon to stop our collaboration,” the club said in a statement on their website.
“Unfortunately, the ongoing competitive instability and the significant losses of points in the championship are the main reasons that made us decide to end our partnership.
“Mr Lennon has written his name in the history of Omonia and deserves the respect and recognition of all of us. Our paths separate, but the memories of our collaboration will unite us forever.
“We sincerely thank Mr Lennon for his contribution and wish him every success in his future career.”
Lennon signed a deal to take him up to the end of the 2023-24 campaign when he was appointed by Omonia in March.
