Polokwane City has revealed that the club have parted ways with head coach Zlatko Krmpotic, the club confirmed in a statement on Friday.
The Serbian coach joined Rise and Shine at the start of the 2019-20 season after taking over the helm from former coach Jozef Vukusic.
Krmpotic stint at Polokwane was short-lived after their poor form which saw them concede five consecutive defeats in recent weeks, despite sitting eighth in the Absa Premiership standings.
However, following their 5-3 defeat to Cape Town City in the Mother City on Wednesday the club has decided to part ways with the Serbian.
The club released the following statement on the matter, which reads:
It is with regret that we announce the departure of Zlatko Krmpotic as the Head Coach of Polokwane City Football Club.
Despite the best efforts of the Club, the Head Coach and all Parties involved with the Club, recent results on the field of play, have, unfortunately, not gone in our favour.
This has prompted the Club and the Head Coach to reconsider the position of Zlatko as the Head Coach of the Club.
In the circumstances, pursuant to a meeting between the Club Chairman, Mr Johnny Mogaladi and the Head Coach it was agreed, in the best interests of the Club, that the Club and Head Coach part ways in an amicable manner.
Accordingly, the Parties have signed a mutual termination of their Contract of Employment with immediate effect.
As of this morning, Zlatko has been relieved of his duties and is no longer the Head Coach of Polokwane City FC.
