Waisale Serevi has been sacked as Fiji sevens coach for what the Fiji Rugby Union called a refusal to obey management instructions.
His place has been taken by Iliesa Tanivula, who will lead Fiji into the next round of the IRB world sevens series in New Zealand next week.
Serevi had been involved in a dispute with the Fiji union over the selection of the Fiji squad for the next two rounds of the IRB series. He claimed to have little if any influence over the selection process.
Fiji Rugby Union chairman Keni Dakuidreketi said Serevi had been "warned repeatedly" about his behaviour and his public criticism of the squad's makeup.
"We reached the decision on Tuesday afternoon to sack Serevi after he repeatedly disobeyed management decisions," Dakuidreketi said.
As a player, Serevi was regarded as one of the greatest ever exponents of sevens rugby and he is a revered figure in Fiji where sevens has the status of a national sport.
Serevi said he had anticipated the Fiji union's decision.

"I knew they were going to do it. I was expecting it," he said.


"We couldn't see eye-to-eye on simple issues which I knew was right but, yes, I've always been available for Fiji and that won't change."
