Kalezic took over at the beginning of this season.

The Phoenix said in a statement... Head Coach of the Wellington Phoenix, Darije Kalezic, wishes to announce that he will not be continuing as Head Coach of the club next season.

The parties were not able to find a mutual agreement on how to proceed forward and because of this have decided to move in separate directions.

Kalezic wishes the best for the Club and fans in the seasons to come.

The Phoenix are bottom of the table with just four wins from 21 games.

There are six rounds remaining.
