Slavisa Stojanovic took over the Slovenian team after the 2010 World Cup.

Slovenia have parted company with coach Slavisa Stojanovic by mutual consent after a poor start to the 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign, the country's football association (NZS) said on its website (www.nzs.si) on Monday.

Stojanovic stepped down after one year in charge during which Slovenia managed just three points from four matches in European qualifying Group E.

"We have failed to live up to our own expectations and wishes in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers and I feel responsible for the results," Stojanovic was quoted as saying by the NZS.

"I wish the team the best of luck and success in the future and I also want to thank the NZS for giving me the opportunity to work with the national team."

Slovenia's next match is at home to Iceland on March 22. Switzerland top Group E with 10 points from four games, followed by Norway on seven. Albania and Iceland have six each while Slovenia and Cyprus are a further three points adrift.
