AFC Leopards coach Nikola Kavazovic has been linked with South African club, Free State Stars, barely a month after taking over at the den.
The Serbian tactician is currently away in Serbia attending attending to a 'family' matter although unconfirmed reports indicate that he's at loggerheads with the club hierarchy.
"The National Executive Committee would like to assure our members and fans that our head coach Mr Nikola Kavazovic has asked to be away for some time to attend to family issues back in Serbia. In the meantime, his assistant Mr. Markov Vasiljevic will jet in town next week in readiness for the league kick off. We urge our fans to exercise patience, "Leopards announced on Saturday.
According to South African outlet, Soccer Laduma, the former Township Rollers boss is favorite to replace another former Ingwe boss Luc Eymael who quit Free State three weeks ago.
Other coaches linked with the job are Ernst Middendorp and Zlatko Krmpotic. The team is currently under interim coaches Selaotse 'Sly' Mosala and David Vilakazi.
