TPS, who plays in the Veikkausliiga football league, has relieved head coach Tommi Pikkarainen of his duties. TPS announced the decision on its website.

TPS have lost all four of their league matches and scored only one goal in the matches. The club is the last in the series.

Pikkarainen started as TPS's head coach in November 2018. At the end of the 2019 season, TPS rose back to the main series through league qualifiers.

The club said it would nominate a new head coach later Friday.

In the Veikkausliiga, the coach kicks are second in a short time. Helsinki IFK showed the door to its Norwegian pilot Tor Thodesen on Monday.
