The club has been in shambles these past few months, which lead to Muhsin Ertugral resigning in early November and Augusto Palacios standing in as interim coach; while the search for a new coach was underway.
Tweeps comment on the new head coach, Kjell Jonevret:

Anyway I hope Kjell Jonevret is given the freedom to coach this team without interference from Floyd and Screamer
