University of Pretoria have parted ways with head coach Shaun Bartlett.

AmaTuks made the announcement on their official social media sites on Tuesday just days before the start of 2018-19 lower tier season.

The National First Division side confirmed that Evangelos Vellios‚ a former coach of the university’s team in Varsity Football‚ would take charge of the professional side’s hot seat for the new season.

“We have amicably parted ways with Shaun Bartlett and have in the meantime appointed Evangelos Vellios as the interim head coach ahead of the 2018-2019 season‚” the club said.

The Pretoria outfit finished 10th in the NFD last season after managing only nine wins and 36 points from 30 games played.
