Dr Misfer's spell came to an end.

Misfer, 54, led the Sky Blues to the President’s Cup semi-finals after he was poached from the UAE Under-23s in March as replacement for the ineffectual Luis Garcia.

But disagreements about the future direction of the underperforming club were behind the decision to part ways.

The proclamation sees the ex-Dibba Al Fujairah and Al Dhafra boss back on the market.

Bani Yas dropped down one place to ninth in the Arabian Gulf League under his control, an often-experimental selection winning two, losing two and drawing one of his matches.

But it was in the UAE’s premier cup competition where he excelled, nearly causing an upset against Al Ain in the President’s Cup last-four when his side fought back from two-goals down on the stroke of 90 minutes to force extra time.

Meanwhile, striker Nilmar has insisted he will see out the final year of his contract at Al Nasr.

Nilmar, 31, cut an exasperating figure during his debut campaign in Dubai, scoring 19 times in 39 games for the AFC Champions League quarter-finalists. He has returned to train with boyhood club Internacional during the summer break and told reporters there about his intention to stick it out in the UAE.

“I want to see my children grow up here, but I’m happy there [in the UAE],” he told Tursedoras. “I have one more year left of my contract.”

Countryman Maicosuel is being forced to wait on his future after Sharjah asked to extend the deadline to pay the Dh10.2m required to turn his loan move into a permanent one.

The attacking midfielder scored 10 goals in 34 matches last term.
