Australian coach Kevin Muscat has been sacked after just 14 games in charge of Sint-Truiden, per Fox Sports.
Muscat’s STVV are battling relegation after just two wins during his brief time in charge.
The Australian was given just three games to save his job, requiring at least seven points from a possible nine.
Muscat’s men managed two draws before slumping to a 3-2 defeat this morning to fellow relegation battlers Mouscron.
The loss sees STVV in 16th in Belgium’s top flight.
He departs the club with two wins, five draws and seven losses from 14 league games.
The club made an official statement on their website and said goodbye to Muscat and two other club officials via Twitter.
“The current ranking forced us to end the collaboration with Kevin Muscat. This was a difficult choice.” STVV CEO Takayuki Tateishi said in a statement
“However, we want to bring confidence back to the group early in the season. We want to make a new start in this way. expect that everyone, players and staff, will work together as one team, which is why I also want to ask you as a supporter to continue to support the team as you have always done”
Muscat’s next move is not yet known, however, if she chooses to return to Australia there is a vacant head coaching role at the Newcastle Jets.
Muscat previously coached Melbourne Victory to two A-League titles and an FFA Cup.
