Miami: The Kansas City Wizards have sacked coach Curt Onalfo after the 6-0 defeat to Dallas in Major League Soccer.

The Wizards are next to bottom of the Eastern Conference having won just five of 18 games this season and Saturday’s hammering was the worst result in the team’s 13 years in MLS.

“Our shareholder group is thankful for Curt Onalfo’s service over the last two-and-a-half seasons, but we felt a change needed to be made,” said Wizards president Robb Heineman in a statement. The Wizards, who also fired assistant coach Kris Kelderman, will announce an interim replacement on Tuesday.
