De Marigny departs Wanderers

Western Sydney Wanderers have parted ways with Jean-Paul de Marigny just five games after appointing him as the A-League club’s head coach.

The Wanderers’ announcement on Monday came as a shock, with de Marigny having been given the job on a permanent basis in July after initially being interim coach following the axing of German coach Markus Babbel in January.
