Forest Green sack Deeney as boss after just 29 days

Forest Green Rovers manager Troy Deeney has been sacked, just days after publicly criticising his team following a 2-0 defeat by Harrogate.

Deeney, who has lasted 29 days in his first managerial role, accused his players after Saturday's home loss of "hiding" and "being scared", adding the team was "full of sulkers".

Speaking later on Sky Sports, Deeney said he should not have slammed his players so much and accepted he let the emotions get the best of him.

But Forest Green have parted company with Deeney after he failed to win any of his six games in charge, with the club bottom of League Two and seven points from safety.

The 35-year-old, who joined Forest Green in a player-coach role last summer, was appointed the club's boss on December 20 replacing the sacked David Horseman.
