 Bratislava,  Slovakia (Sports  Network) -  The Slovakian  Football Association
 confirmed  on  Monday that  national  team  manager  Vladimir Weiss  has  been
 terminated by mutual agreement.
 Weiss  had a  contract that  ran  until 2014,  but  a brief  statement on  the
 organization's website confirmed the departure of Weiss.
