Oldham Athletic are pleased to announce that Dino Maamria has become the new Head Coach of the club on a deal that will last until the end of the 2020/21 season.
The 48 year-old was recently in charge of fellow Sky Bet League Two side Stevenage FC from March 2018 until earlier this month. In his first full season in charge his side finished on 70 points, just missing out on the play-offs by one.
Maamria who is of Tunisian descent has had a lengthy playing career in England before stepping into coaching and then management.
The experienced UEFA Pro Licence Coach has also had spells as Assistant Manager at Preston North End and Newport County.
On his arrival, Maamria said; “I’m hugely excited to join such a historical football club. The vision and ambition of the Chairman was a big factor and the first priority is to stabilise and unite this great football club.”
He added: “I’m here to win football matches as well as improve, give confidence and belief to an already talented squad.”
Dino Maamria will take charge of Saturday’s home league game against Morecambe FC.
An official club interview on iFollow Latics will be conducted in due course.
Welcome to the club, Dino!
