Akbay, together with his assistant Tendai Chikuni, was sacked on Tuesday after failing to meet the target he was given at the start of the season.

“That is the reason why it is not nice to work here so you have to stop working.

“The other reason why I parted ways with them it’s because I was not producing the results they need so if you not winning your games no one is happy,” said Akbay.

He added:
