Former Kenyan Premier League (KPL) giant AFC Leopards have parted ways with coach Marko Vesiljevic less than two months on the job.

Marko, 25, quit following a heavy defeat away to Bandari FC in Mombasa on Sunday in a KPL match.

The Dockers inflicted a painful 4-1 defeat on the visitors to compound their woes.

Marco was confirmed as Ingwe coach mid December last year, taking over from his former boss Nikola Kavazovic who ditched the 12-times KPL winners for Free States Stars of South Africa.

In his short stint at the helm of Ingwe, the Serbian managed two league wins in 10 fixtures, losing 4 and drawing a similar number.

The Serbian also lost 2-1 to Simba SC in the SportPesa Cup in Tanzania mid this month.

His assistant Tom Juma is also believed to be on his way out of the club.

Leopards have not won the KPL since 1998. This has been attributed to poor management and perennial leadership squabbles within the club.
