Malaysian Super League side Johor Darul Takzim announced on Tuesday that it had relieved Fandi Ahmad of his coaching duties.

The move came 10 days after the football club, who finished third in the MSL, announced that Spaniard Cesar Ferrando Jimenez would be taking charge on Aug 18, shortly before the Malaysia Cup tournament kicks off.

Singapore legend Fandi was expected to continue working with the team until then but it has emerged that Azmi Mohamed, coach of the state's second-tier side Johor FA, will be in temporary charge.

The club added on its Facebook page that Fandi will remain in his role as team manager.
