Bulgaria's Levski Set to Fire Coach Jokanovic - Report
Bulgaria giants Levski Sofia are about to fire coach Slavisa Jokanovic, according to local media reports.
News website Gong.bg reported has reported that Ivaylo Petev, former coach of champions Ludogorets Razgrad, is “99.9% sure” to take over at the helm of the club.
“We have a training session tomorrow, I am arriving here thinking about work…I cannot tell you more, since I do not know,” Jokanovic, who arrived from a trip to Spain late on Monday, has told Gong.
