Darren Ferguson has resigned as manager of Peterborough.
The Sky Bet Championship club are in the relegation zone at present.
Losing to fellow struggles Derby County on Saturday was the last straw as far as Ferguson’s time at the club is concerned.
A club statement read: “Peterborough United can confirm that the co-owners have accepted the resignation of manager Darren Ferguson following a phone call made by Darren to Darragh MacAnthony on Sunday.
“Ferguson steered Posh to automatic promotion from Sky Bet League One last term and has four promotions on his CV during his time at the Weston Homes Stadium.”
Co-owner Darragh MacAnthony added: “Myself and my two partners regard Darren as one of the greatest managers of this football club, most certainly in the modern era. The success we have enjoyed with him at the helm has been unrivalled and he will always be described as a legend by myself and my partners.
“I want to personally thank him for all his hard work on behalf of the club, particularly in his third spell when he dealt with the unquestionable frustration at the season being cut short due to Covid-19 and then responding by securing promotion the following season against all the odds.
“The financial constraints he had to work under due to the impact of no supporters inside the stadium was something that nobody could have foreseen, and he dealt with that in such an admirable and methodical way.
“He created a working environment that the players enjoyed despite the restrictions and he deserves enormous credit for that and the success we enjoyed.”
