Western Sydney's sacking of beleaguered Babbel was inevitable

Perth Glory won their sixth game in a row with a 1-0 win away at Western Sydney Wanderers.

The 37-year-old was released from his contract on Friday morning after 12 games and just one goal for the Wanderers despite arriving in the A-League to great excitement in September.
