Istanbul: Galatasaray have dimsissed former Italy World Cup coach Cesare Prandelli after a string of poor results culminating in their exit from European competition, the Dogan news agency reported on Thursday.
Anderlecht beat Galatasaray 2-0 in their penultimate Champions League Group D game on Wednesday, guaranteeing that the Turkish club would finish fourth and miss out on a place in the Europa League.
Prandelli`s dismissal, widely reported by Turkish media, could not immediately be confirmed.
He resigned as Italy manager after they failed to get past the group stage at this year`s World Cup in Brazil.
Galatasaray announced in July that Prandelli was replacing fellow Italian Roberto Mancini, who left the club after less than a season in charge.
