Cape Town - Free State Stars have confirmed that head coach Denis Lavagne has parted ways with the club.

Ea Lla Koto have not won a single Absa Premiership match so far this season having notched up two defeats and draw in their three opening games.

Their latest defeat happened against Golden Arrows where Lehlohonolo Nonyane netted a 90 minute winning goal.

Lavagne has been in the position since the resignation of Giovanni Solinas in May. 

"In concluding the employment contract with Free State Stars Football club the Head coach had agreed that the special nature of professional football and the need for excellent relationships to avoid the very real risk of disaster to the entire club, team, and all its stakeholders is such that if the employment relationship between the parties breaks down for any reason but particularly if the Head coach does not perform to the standards desired by the club, termination will be appropriate," read the statement.

"It has been a tough decision that the club has had to make knowing how early in the season it is and the track record of the Head coach.

"However, due to the recent loss to Golden Arrows and the mood within the first team, the club has elected to avoid the risk and look to include a head coach who will assist in building the moral of the footballers which we believe will result in valuable points.

"We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Head Coach for his efforts."
