Legoland FC have parted company with manager Raymond Domenech after a disastrous end to the season saw the club lose the Minifig Gold Cup final and finish 6th place in the Piecelat Serie A. The heavily indebted club took the decision to axe the head coach after completion of a performance review and consultation with stakeholders.
Legoland’s most famous club missed out of the most lucrative competition of them all, the Minifig Gold Cup, after their catastrophic loss to the Kingdom of Playmobil’s purported “no hopers”, Ludoplaymo. The final defeat is estimated to cost the club upwards of £50m over the next 12 months, money desperately needed to plug the massive hole in the franchise’s balance books. The team has racked up over £70m in debt in recent months after the club undertook a playing staff revamp.
Domenech’s dismissal will in itself add to LFC’s debts. Securing the former Kland FC manager cost a record £15m in compensation to his former employers back in August 2010. The club are rumoured to have opened talks with Piecelat Panthers’ Roberto Mancini and the minifig is the current favourite to take over the hot-seat, however securing his services will likely require another significant financial outlay.
