The former Polokwane City coach, who joined Eswatini’s national team in December 2018, is said to have his contract not renewed when it expires this month.

According to KickOff.com, the Eswatini FA released a statement that it has opted not to retain the services of Papic after failing to meet his demands on a new contract.

“The EFA wishes to announce that in view of its capacity to meet the demands of the head coach of the senior national team Sihlangu, Kostadin Papic, the contract of engagement will not be renewed,” read part of the statement, according to KickOff.

The 59-year-old Serbian tactician has already been heavily linked with the Zambian national team post.
