Kashima Antlers have let go of manager Masatada Ishii after they missed their chance to advance to the Asian Champions League quarterfinals, the J. League first-division side said Wednesday.

A day after Ishii’s men beat China’s Guanghzou Evergrande 2-1 at home in the round of 16 for a 2-2 aggregate draw but were eliminated from the continental championship on the away goals rule, the club said the 50-year-old manager will be replaced by coach Go Oiwa.
