Oldham Athletic fans react to the appointment of Dino Maamria

Oldham Athletic have appointed Dino Maamria as their new manager.

The 48-year-old has signed a one-and-a-half year contract with the League Two side, as announced by their official club website yesterday.

Maamria, who had spells in his playing days with the likes of Doncaster Rovers and Glentoran, has recently been sacked by Stevenage and has made an immediate return to the dugout.

He took over at Broadhall Way in March 2018 and guided Boro to safety in his first season at the club. His side then finished 10th in the fourth tier in the last campaign, a point outside the Play-Offs.

Maamria was sacked by Stevenage earlier last week after a poor start to this season.

He has spoken to Oldham’s website after his appointment: “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. I’m here to win football matches as well as improve, give confidence and belief to an already talented squad.”

Here is how the Oldham fans have reacted on Twitter-
