DALLAS, May 20 (Reuters) - Major League Soccer's FC Dallas have sacked their Northern Irish coach Steve Morrow after losing their last four games, the club said on Tuesday.
'We have set high standards, expectations, and goals for this team and organization,' said Dallas general manager Michael Hitchcock in a statement.
'I feel that the team was not heading in the direction we had planned, and believe it is in the best interest of the club to make a coaching change at this time,' he added.
Assistant Marco Ferruzzi will take charge of the team on an interim basis starting with Saturday's home game against Real Salt Lake City.
Former Arsenal and Northern Ireland midfielder Morrow ended his playing career with Dallas and became an assistant coach in 2004 before taking on the head coach job in November 2006.
