Ramesh Sharma is no longer the head coach of the Nadroga football team.
Former Ba and Fiji stalwart, Kiniviliame Naika, has been appointed as the head mentor.
Sharma was in charge of only four games in the Digicel Premier League, where the side lost two and drew as many matches.
Nadroga football president Mohammed Ali says they have reshuffled the coaching officials based on the results attained so far.
“As a head coach we will do a little bit of reshuffle and that’s it, we are not sacking him or taking him out. He will always be part our development team, he will always be there but he will not be our head coach anymore.”
Ali confirms Naika who has been involved with the team from the past years will now guide the side.
“Kiniviliame has been helping in and out since last year with Johnny Williams and he has also been helping out this year but not full time. We are trying to give him a chance to come and give him the role as a full-time coach.”
Sharma is the second coach to be shown the exit door, following Lautoka’s decision last week to fire Tagi Vonolagi.
