Felix Magath has been replaced as manager of Sky Bet Championship strugglers Fulham.
A statement on the club's official website confirmed chairman Shahid Khan had acted following the Cottagers' dismal start to the campaign.
Fulham, relegated from the Barclays Premier League last season, lie bottom of the Championship with one point from their opening seven games.
The final straw for Khan was Wednesday night's 5-3 defeat at leaders Nottingham Forest, where visiting fans once again called for the German to be sacked.
Fulham's under-21 coach Kit Symons has been placed in caretaker charge for Saturday's visit of Blackburn.
