Former Serbian footballer Ljubomir (Ljupko) Petrovi? has stepped down as coach of Levski football club in Bulgaria, citing humiliating attitude to him among the management and questioning the funding handed out to players.

A list of nine reasons made familiar to reporters included work "under huge tension", a campaign led against him within the senior executives in the club, a practice of not allowing him to select and approve players hired by the team and improper bonuses for the players that keeps them ill-motivated.

The coach's importance at Levski is completely dvoid of value, Petrovi? has argued.

The 69-year-old former professional football player, however, has added that he is lucky to have Levski as the last team in his career.

Like most other big professional footbal teams in Bulgaria, Levski has undergone a financial crisis over the past few years, changing ownership and striving to pay its debt. 

Petrovi? took over as Levski's coach earlier this year.
