Vermezovic’s record as Chiefs coach

Vladimir Vermezovic’s record as Kaizer Chiefs coach

Posted: 12 April 2012 Time: 03:32 pm

Axed Kaizer Chiefs coach Vladimir Vermezovic had a League win ratio of just over 51 percent during his almost three years with the club.

That compares favourably to his peers, with no other coach managing to better that this season, bar Augusto Palacios at Orlando Pirates, who has only been in charge for six League games.

Vermezovic’s sudden departure from the job at this crucial stage of the season when his team is still very much in the mix for League and Nedbank Cup honours suggests off-field issues may lie at the heart of his dismissal.

He led the team in 83 League matches in total, winning 42 of those and suffering 17 defeats for a total of 150 League points.

That is below the standard set by Ted Dumitru between 2003 and 2005 when he led the side to back-to-back League titles, winning 35 of the 60 matches he played for a win ratio of 58 percent.

It is close to the mark set by Donald Khuse and Doctor Khumalo when they were last in charge of the team between the tenures of Muhsin Ertugral and Dumitru in the 2002/03 campaign.

They managed a win ratio of 52 percent in the League with 13 victories from the 25 matches they were in charge of as the side finished sixth.

If you add cup competitions into the mix then Vermezovic’s win ratio jumps to 53 percent, boosted by the two Telkom Knockout victories he managed in the 2010 calendar year.

His side won 16 of the 26 cup matches they played, drawing four and losing six. They did claim both of the penalty shoot-outs that he was involved in as a coach as well.

At Chiefs, we know of grooming uknown managers and giving them a platform to showcase their talent in managing....

Good luck manager, "you had a share of your time which was not the time to share!!!"

There is nothing special about this Clown(except his cry-baby skills).
Was he called the "special one" because he beat the mightiest team in Southern Africa?

He is achieved chicken feet compared to Kroll
