March 26 (Bloomberg) -- Turkey’s Galatasaray soccer club sacked head coach Gheorgie Hagi, cutting short his 18-month contract after the team lost 13 of its 26 matches so far this season.

The club will promote Bulent Under to the position until the end of the season, its listed marketing unit Galatasaray Sportif Sinai & Ticari Yatirimlar AS said in a statement to the Istanbul stock exchange after the market closed yesterday.

Galatasaray, one of Istanbul’s big three clubs with Fenerbahce and Besiktas, ranks 11th in the Turkish Super League standings.

An ex-star for Romania’s national team, Hagi was hired in October to replace former Barcelona manager and Dutch international Frank Rijkaard.
