Prosinecki leaves job as Azerbaijan national team coach

BY AP • October 27, 2017

BAKU, Azerbaijan (AP) Robert Prosinecki has left his post as coach of the Azerbaijan national soccer team after his contract was not renewed.

The Azerbaijan soccer federation says in a statement that Prosinecki and the federation leadership decided by mutual consent not to seek a new deal.

The former Real Madrid and Croatia player had been in charge since December 2014, when he replaced Berti Vogts.

Prosinecki led Azerbaijan to its best-ever record in World Cup qualifying with 10 points, but that was still well short of the qualification places for next year's tournament.

The federation provided no word on a possible successor.
