English Championship side AFC Bournemouth has parted ways with manager Jason Tindall after just six months in charge.
After being relegated to the Championship last season, Bournemouth had a perfect start to life in the English second tier but have slipped to sixth after a run of four straight defeats.
A statement from the club noted: “AFC Bournemouth have today parted company with manager Jason Tindall.
“It is a decision which has not been taken lightly, given Jason’s outstanding commitment to the club as a player, assistant manager, and manager. However, recent performances and results have fallen well below the board’s expectations.
“We feel a change is needed now in order to give the club the best possible chance of achieving the goals that were clearly set out last summer. We would like to place on record our thanks to Jason for his services to AFC Bournemouth over the past 22 years.”
It ends a 22-year association with the club for Tindall, who played for the Cherries and was an assistant manager before stepping up to succeed Eddie Howe in the summer.
Jonathan Woodgate, who was appointed as a first-team coach on Tuesday is the frontrunner to take over as caretaker manager.
