Oldham name Dino Maamria as new boss 20 minutes after sacking Laurent Banide – The Sun

OLDHAM have named Dino Maamria as their new manager – just 20 minutes after sacking Laurent Banide.

The struggling League Two club decided to axe Frenchman Banide after just 11 games in charge at Boundary Park.

In that time they have collected just 7 points from their first nine league games, winning only once.

And within minutes of announcing his contract had been terminated, the Latics then revealed Maamria had become their fifth boss in 12 months.

The 48-year-old had started the season in charge of Stevenage, only to lose his own job last month.

But the Tunisian was seen as the ideal man to revive Oldham's flagging fortunes having performed well at Stevenage last season.

Maamria said; “I’m hugely excited to join such an historical football club.
