Al Khor, Banide part ways


QNB Stars League team Al Khor parted ways with coach Laurent Banide. The club management terminated the Frenchman’s contract by mutual consent after its meeting held on Monday evening.

Banide’s dismissal followed a series of negative results by Al Khor, culminating in their loss to Umm Salal in the last round and shock defeat to newcomers Al Markhiya in the previous week. They are lying in the ninth position and their only win was against Al Ahli in Round 2.

Al Khor, under a caretaker coach for the time being, next play host to leaders Al Duhail on Friday.
