Macedonia sack Jonuz

Mirsad Jonuz has been dismissed from his post as the coach of FYR Macedonia, the country's football federation announced.

A statement on the FFM's website today confirmed Jonuz was relieved of his coaching duties as a result of their poor UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying campaign.

"Following extensive discussions regarding results achieved in qualifying for the 2012 European Championship, a unanimous decision has been reached to remove Mirsad Jonuz from his position as the coach of the national team," the federation's statement said.

The FFM added they will hold another meeting soon to find Jonuz's successor. Macedonia lie in fifth place in qualifying Group B with just four points following successive defeats to Republic of Ireland.
