Nigeria Premier League (NPL) outfit, Warri Wolves ended their relationship with their Belgian coach, Maurice Cooreman, supersport.com can report.
Though the Warri-based team are yet to make an official announcement on the sack of Cooreman, supersport.com learned that the agreement was reached on Monday after a meeting between the club and the coach.
The relationship between Cooreman and Wolves lasted for just close to eight months.
Cooreman disclosed that his contract ended with the immediate past season and he agreed not to renew owing to the "problems" at the club.
"My contract ended after the season and usually I don't like working where there's too much problems. Really I don't have problems with the chairman, secretary, or other officials and players. But you just have to leave when you have to leave.
"We agreed in a meeting not to renew the contract and now I'm waiting for my pay-off so that I can return to my house in Lagos. Now I'm open to discussion from any other team," said Cooreman.
Top officials of the club, however, refused to make comments on the development and pleaded not to have their names mentioned by supersport.com.
But it has also been learned that Wolves cannot make their position on Cooreman's future at the club official since they are yet to pay him off.
Cooreman was hired in February this year to replace Paul Aigbogun, now with South African club, FC Cape Town.
Already, Dutchman Lodewijk de Kruif is strongly linked with taking up the job at Warri Wolves.
Wolves finished the 2011/2012 season in 16th position on 48 points and escaped relegation by the whiskers.
