Former Celtic speed demon Didier Agathe has left his managerial role at Durham City after a poor run of results since a return to football.
There was high hopes for Agathe and the club early on and Durham City made sure they capitalised on the Celtic link at the time by selling special Durham hoops jerseys with Agathe on the back.
However, it looks like that’s the only boost he’s gave the club because on the field, they have struggled for form.
Olivier Bernard (Durham chief) told The Sunderland Echo: “I think it was good to have Didier at the club.
“His attitude has been very refreshing, he had big ideas for the start of his career as a manager, but unfortunately the situation at the club has changed and Didier has had to leave.
“Hopefully, in the future, we will be able to communicate the reasons behind this, but I can say that I am sad to see him go.
“I think he could have done well at the club, but I understand why he is disappointed.
“We are both disappointed because we had a good partnership and having Didier was a big thing for the club.”
It appears as if Didier walked from the club and wasn’t sacked.
The former winger was sensational for Celtic and has to go down as one of Celtic’s bargain buys at a little over £50k from Hibs.
Management isn’t fit everyone, just ask his former Celtic teammate Chris Sutton.
Celtic fans who bought the jersey will now have a specific piece of memorabilia from a brief part of Durham City’s history.
