Jovin leaves Leotar

Vladimir Gacinovic has been named the new coach of FK Leotar following the resignation of Mile Jovin.
Mile Jovin has resigned as coach of Bosnia-Herzegovnian champions FK Leotar in the wake of Saturday's 3-0 defeat at FK Zeljeznicar.

Gacinovic takes over
The defeat left Leotar seven points behind leaders NK Široki Brijeg in second place in the table. Jovin's assistant, Vladimir Gacinovic, has been confirmed as his replacement. Jovin led Leotar into their first ever European campaign at the start of the season, beating CS Grevenmacher over two legs in the UEFA Champions League first qualifying round before elimination by SK Slavia Praha.

'Best solution'
He said of his departure: "Leotar need some fresh strength and I think that the best solution would be for me to leave. I' hae enjoyed excellent working conditions in Trebinje and I believe we achieved a lot."
