Cesare Prandelli absent for training today

Galatasaray manager Cesare Prandelli did not come out to lead first team training today.

The former Italy national team manager is expected to part company with Galatasaray today.

First team training was taken by the clubs coaching staff.

Prandelli has fallen out of favour with both the club and its supports following a string of disappointing performances and heavy defeats.

Galatasaray have yet to win in the Champions League this season, the Lions have only picked up a single point after five games.

The Süper Lig giants have conceded 15 times and only scored twice in the competition..

Hikmet Karaman and Tugay Kerimoglu have been hotly tipped to succeed Prandelli at Galatasaray.

Galatasaray are currently in third place in the Super League with 19 points from 10 games.
