Antalyaspor have parted ways with former Trabzonspor manager Hami Mandirali.

The PTT 1. Lig side sacked Mandirali after back to back losses in the league.

The Scorpions are currently in 4th place, 13 points behind league leaders Kayserispor.

Mandirali was appointed Antalyaspor head coach in round 9 and has managed the Scorpions for a total of 12 games.

Antalyaspor have won five, drawn three and lost four games under the command of the 46 year old manager.

Mandirali spent nearly all of his playing career at Trabzonspor and enjoyed brief stints at Schalke and Ankaragucu.

The 46 year old was manager of the Turkey U21 side between 2008-2010 and enjoyed a brief stint coaching Trabzonspor in 2014.

Antalyaspor were relegated from the Süper Lig last season and are targeting a return to top-flight football next season.

The Scorpions will guarantee promotion if they finish the season inside the top two.

Antalyaspor will have to go through the playoff route if they finish in the top 6.
