Having arrived in Slovakia to spend the off-season with his family, the coach has confirmed that he has made a decision to not return to Rise and Shine.

Vukusic has led Rise and Shine to an impressive fifth place finish on the Absa Premiership log for the 2018/19 season, despite the challenges without his family. 

“I am at home and I spent the weekend with my family,” the coach told the Siya crew from Slovakia.

“Finally, I have decided not to continue with Polokwane City because the family situation doesn’t allow me to continue there. Today, I informed the manager (Bernard) Molekwa about my decision,” added Vukusic.

Asked if he has informed the club’s chairman, Johnny Mogaladi, about his decision, the coach has confirmed that he is planning to do so some other time.

“I spoke to Mr Molekwa – the assistant and manager. In the next few days, I will speak to the chairman as well. But the decision is final like that,” the coach said.   

Vukusic confirmed that he still had one year on his contract with the club. The club also had an option to extend the deal by two years.
