By Robert Matakanye,
Polokwane City have parted ways with their head coach Zlatko Krmpotic, the club confirmed in a statement on Friday.
Krmpotic, who joined Rise and Shine at the start of this season, has overseen five consecutive defeats in recent weeks with the club currently sitting in eighth place in the PSL standings.
The Serbian’s last game in charge was on Wednesday when Polokwane City lost 5-3 to Cape Town City.
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.
