Slovenia have sacked coach Bojan Prasnikar following a series of poor results, the Slovenian Football Association has confirmed.

“The results were bad, this is a fact and can be proven. A change of manager is inevitable,” said Rudi Zavrl, president of the Slovenian FA.

“The (team) selection was inconsistent, perhaps even incomprehensible, since chances were given to players that did not deserve to play for the national team,” he added.

“It’s difficult to talk about candidates right now as we haven’t made any contacts yet but we will take into account domestic and foreign specialists,” said Zavrl.

The Slovenian FA expects to name Prasnikar’s successor on May 24.

Prasnikar took over as national coach in July 2002. It was his third time in charge after earlier spells between 1991-1993 and again in 1998.
