Perth Glory have sacked coach Richard Garcia and his assistant Steven McGarry following a horror run of results for the A-League Men club.
Garcia's tenure at Glory was heavily affected by COVID-19 challenges, with the team forced to spend most of its time interstate.
But it was the recent run of poor results upon the team returning home that marked Garcia's cards, with Glory snaring just one point from their string of four consecutive home matches.
"COVID-19 has had a huge impact upon the club on and off the field which cannot be over-stated and its legacy is still being felt," Glory owner Tony Sage said.
"Ultimately, however, this is a results business and unfortunately, claiming one point from our last four home games is an unacceptable return.
"The difficult decision has therefore been made to part company with the head coach and his assistant."
