Al Nassr has announced that head coach, Rudi Garcia has left the club by mutual agreement.
Garcia has been fired due to his poor relationship with the dressing room, which includes Cristiano Ronaldo.
He recently confronted the players, a move which proved costly, as the Saudi Pro League club has taken the decision to dismiss him.
Garcia has also failed to live up to the expectations set out in his club’s ambitious project.
With seven fixtures left to play, Al Nassr is currently in second place, three points behind Al Ittihad.
Despite guiding Al Nassr to seven wins from their past eight league games, Garcia’s failure to claim top spot in the division left him fighting for his future at the Riyadh-based club.
Garcia remained in his post at Al Nassr longer than the majority of coaches in the Saudi Pro League, which has one of the highest rates of manager dismissals in the world, with head coaches averaging just over four months in their posts.
Al Nassr are three points behind league leaders Al Ittihad and face traditional rivals and reigning Asian champions Al Hilal in their next game, which is Tuesday.
