National football team part ways with head coach Şenol Güneş
Güneş, whose contract ended by mutual consent, was under fire from sports officials and fans alike after Turkey suffered a huge 6-1 loss to the Netherlands on Sept. 7 in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying game.
Following the historic defeat, Turkey dropped to the number three spot in the group with 11 points.
It was a devastating defeat but not the heaviest one for the Turkish team, as England toppled Turkey 8-0 twice, in 1984 and 1987.
The federation thanked the 69-year-old Güneş and wished him success in his future endeavors.
