FC Tokyo will sack manager Hiroshi Jofuku for the second time with the 55-year-old struggling in his first year back at the club, the J. League first-division side announced Sunday.
Jofuku coached the side from 2008 and won the Nabisco Cup in 2009 before he was fired for the first time in 2010. He replaced Massimo Ficcadenti ahead of this season, but could only manage ninth in the first stage. The club has lost its last three games to place 16th in the second stage.
