Assistant manager Terry Harris has also left, with former club captain George Elokobi placed in caretaker charge.

Hayrettin joined United as head coach under John Still in January 2019, succeeding him as manager just over a year later.

He won the National League South title last season but has paid the price for a poor run of form.

His final game in charge was a 4-1 defeat at York City on Saturday.

Chief executive Bill Williams said: “We have made the difficult decision to part company with Hakan and his assistant Terry Harris, following the recent run of results.

“These decisions are never easy, and the board felt the time was right to make this change now - with just under half the season remaining - to give us an opportunity to retain our National League status.

“On behalf of the owners, directors and all staff involved with Maidstone United, we would like to express our thanks to Hak and Terry for all their time, effort and guidance while they’ve been at the club.”
