The Dutchman took charge of the Istanbul giants last March after Mustafa Denizli was dismissed and won the Turkish cup but he could only lead the club to sixth in the league.

On Sunday, Galatasaray lost 2-1 at home to Kayserispor which keeps them third in the league and five points off the top. The result seems to have been the final straw for the clubs board, who have sacked Olde Riekerink, according to CNN Turk.

Galatasaray have yet to make the news official.
