Weiss leaves role with Slovakia
The Slovakia Football Association have confirmed that national team coach Vladimir Weiss is leaving the job.
A brief statement on the organisation's official website, www.futbalsfz.sk, revealed that Weiss' contract, which was due to expire in 2014, has been terminated.
It read: "Jan Kovacik (SFA president) and Vladimir Weiss have signed an agreement to terminate the contractual relationship."
Weiss, 47, took charge of the national team in June 2008 and led the team to the Round of 16 of the FIFA World Cup™ two years ago.
However, he was unable to earn qualification for this summer's UEFA European Championship.
Despite a win in Russia and two draws against fellow qualifiers the Republic of Ireland, Slovakia finished fourth in the group, with a pair of defeats against Armenia proving costly.
