Former Dundee United manager Tam Courts has parted company with Budapest Honved after just 14 games in charge.

Courts joined the Hungarian side after departing Tannadice in the summer, linking up with former United backroom staff member Chris Docherty, who had recently taken over as sporting director of the Nemzeti Bajnokság I side.

Four months after making the move to Hungary, Courts is now looking for another opportunity as his time as manager came to an end with the team in eighth place in the table.

A club statement read: “Tam Courts is leaving the Budapest Honvéd bench after our club terminated the contract with the head coach by mutual agreement.

“The Scot took over the management of Honvéd in June 2022, after summer training and significant changes in the squad, he sat on the bench in Kispest for the first time at the start of the 2022/2023 season. He managed our club in a total of 12 league and 2 cup matches, in which he had 5 wins, 4 draws and 5 defeats, and he played an important role in the inclusion of several of our academy players in the senior team.

“We thank Tam Courts for what he has done for Honvéd, and we wish him the best of luck in his future career.”
