Slovenia coach Kek steps down

The Slovenian Football Association have announced national team head coach Matjaz Kek has had his contract terminated by mutual agreement.

Kek took up the reins in January 2007 in place of Branko Oblak following a poor run in Euro 2008 qualifying, and led the team to last summer's World Cup finals in South Africa.

However, Kek's side will not be involved at Euro 2012 after finishing a disappointing fourth in their recently-concluded qualifying Group C campaign - behind Italy, Estonia and Serbia.

He will continue in some capacity with the association in conjunction with the new coach - an announcement on whom is expected on Monday.

A statement on the organisation's website read: ''The Slovenian Football Association (NZS) and the national team head coach Matjaz Kek have come to a mutual agreement on the early termination of his contract.

''Without a doubt Matjaz Kek has been a good general manager and achieved excellent results with the national team.

''NZS is thankful to Kek for the successful job and is looking forward to future joint achievements.''
