Melbourne Victory sack Kurz after 13 games

Wed 15 January 2020 | 2:04

A 3-2 loss to Central Coast Mariners proved the final straw for Melbourne Victory's hierarchy.

Melbourne Victory have sacked head coach Marco Kurz, the A-League giants announced on Wednesday.

Victory turned to former Adelaide United boss Kurz as a replacement for club legend Kevin Muscat at the start of the season, but the German only lasted 13 matches.

The decision comes following a controversial and last-gasp 3-2 defeat away to lowly Central Coast Mariners on Sunday, with Kurz sent off for abusing the fourth official.

Kurz, along with his assistant Filip Tapalovic, leave Victory as they sit sixth in the standings and 19 points adrift of leaders Sydney FC.

Assistant coach Carlos Salvachua will take over for the remainder of the season.
