Munich - Bundesliga 2 outfit TSV 1860 Munich have announced the departure of head coach Ricardo Moniz following a below-par start to the 2014/15 campaign.

Tuesday’s disappointing, last-gasp 1-0 defeat to ten-men SV Sandhausen has left the Lions with six points from their opening seven encounters, just two points adrift of the foot of the table. Current assistant coach Markus von Ahlen, who has twice previously acted as interim head coach for the club, will take charge of first-team affairs for the upcoming Matchday 8 clash with SpVgg Greuther Fürth.
