Published Add your comment

Bottom of the Bosnian Premier League, nowhere to turn, what's the next cause of action? Sack their manager.

Following the trend of clubs all around the world, FK Drina Zvornik sacked their gaffer in a bid to save their season and lift them off the bottom of the Bosnian Premier League.

However, the hilarity of the situation comes from the manner in which they pushed his dismissal through - announcing it on the club's Facebook page without even notifying the man himself.

The club were promoted to the Bosnian top division at the end of the 2013/2014 season, prompting celebrations around a club formed only 15 years ago - specifically just after the break up of Yugoslavia.

Vladica Petrovic was appointed back in July where he only managed ten games under his belt for club. Winning just two of them.

Facebook farce

Zvornik released a link on their Facebook page notifying the fans of his dismissal only for Petrovic to comment on the post stating: "Thanks for letting me know".

Being the tenth manager to lose his job in that league already this season, it seems Bosnia are setting the trend for untimely dismissals.

Especially when you have to do it through public social media.

As reported by BBC Sport, when interviewed for, Petrovic stated:

"When I got to the profile, I saw their notice and thanked them for it. As more of a laugh. I did not know one comment could get so many likes."

After this undoubted fiasco, at least FK Drina Zvornik's former man at the helm got a good laugh out of the most inappropriate sacking you could possibly go through.
