    Jean-Paul de Marigny Departs Wanderers


    mack

    Jean-Paul de Marigny was today left the Western Sydney Wanderers, just 9 months after he ascended to the head coach role following the sacking of Markus Babbel.

    The Wanderers released a very short statement today on their website: "Western Sydney Wanderers FC have today parted ways with head coach Jean-Paul de Marigny. The club thanks Jean-Paul for his efforts and wishes him success in the future. The club will make an announcement in the coming days on a replacement coach."

    It is unclear at this early stage if the move was a sacking, or if de Marigny left the club of his own accord. 

    Jean-Paul de Marigny's time at the club did result in a small uplift in the clubs performances, and he was able to keep the Wanderers from losing a Sydney derby this season. His final statistics in charge were 5 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses from 12 games, his best results coming in February as he lead the Wanderers to a 1-0 derby win, after smashing Adelaide United 5-2.

    In the post Lockdown period however, the 3-1 loss to Perth and the 5-3 loss to Western United culled the small hopes of playing finals football, and a 2-1 win over Melbourne Victory closed out the season.

    The Wanderers have not announced a replacement at this time. Whoever it is will have their work cut out for them, as the club will be dealing with the loss of our best player Mitch Duke, having signed nothing but youth player upgrades at this point in the pre-season and with a massive cut in the salary cap looming.

    Wanderers Chairman, at the time of de Marigny's appointment in July said “with JP at the helm and our squad working hard at our fantastic Centre of Football, we eagerly anticipate the return of the Hyundai A-League and watching our group take the steps required to make our many members and fans proud.”

    Lederer's words ring hollow with the erstwhile head coach leaving just three months after his 'permanent' appointment.

    Don’t know much about this guy

    Is he good?

    Produced Alphonso Davies who was the starting leftback in Bayern Munich's Champions League win.

    Only lost 1 out of 10 with the Jets. Beat the likes of Sydney and City from memory.

    Has done well in the A-League to date.

    Had an average Jets team flying after Covid (lost 1/10). MLS experience before that. Don't know his FIFA rating ;)

    Should be better than JP.

    Carl Robinson was 64 on FIFA 11 when he played for NY Red Bulls

    Must admit that when watching Newcastle after the restart I was thinking "why can't we have a coach like him" !!
