The Dutchman did not do well during his time at the Ohio club.

FC Cincinnati

have announced that they have sacked their manager, Jaap Stam.

The former

Manchester United

and AC Milan defender took over at MLS club in May 2020 and signed an 18-month contract with the club. However, after a 4-2 defeat to DC United, their third in a row, the club decided to end its partnership with the manager.

Cincinnati president Jeff Berding told the club's website:

"During our nearly two-month process to identify the next General Manager for FC Cincinnati, it was apparent that a Head Coach change was necessary.

"Therefore, after a great deal of deliberation, the club has made the decision to now move to the future with Jaap no longer serving as Head Coach.

"We believe a change in leadership is in the best interest of the club at this time, and a new General Manager will lead the search for a new Head Coach.

"We are an ambitious club and we remain focused on achieving our goals, the first of which is making Cincinnati a championship city.

"We thank Jaap for everything he has done for FC Cincinnati during his time here, and we wish him the best as he can now head home to be with his family."

Stam led the club for 47 games and only managed to win eight games. Along with him, Bakati and Yuan Damet, his assistants have also been fired.
