Oldham Athletic have sacked head coach Dino Maamria after 10 months in charge.

The 49-year-old Tunisian won just nine out of 32 games after replacing Laurent Banide in September 2019.

Former Australia and Liverpool midfielder Harry Kewell is set to be appointed as Maamria's replacement, reports BBC Radio Manchester.

Oldham, who finished the curtailed League Two season 19th, are looking to name their seventh boss since Abdallah Lemsagam became owner in 2018.

Maamria had started the 2019-20 season in charge of Stevenage, but was sacked in September after they failed to win any of their opening seven league games.

He took over from Banide at Oldham later the same month after the Frenchman won only two of 11 matches in charge.

Maamria began his reign as boss with a victory against Morecambe, but the five-game winless run that followed summed up their inconsistent season.

His departure comes during a turbulent period off the field, with Oldham having a winding-up petition dismissed by the High Court earlier in July after a debt owed to HM Revenue and Customs was cleared.

That verdict came after the Latics said they avoided going into administration after they repaid money to two former owners.
