Hungarian outfit Videoton have parted company with head coach Paulo Sousa by mutual consent.

After 17 games in the Hungarian top flight, Videoton are currently sat in fourth spot.

The club have been keen to confirm that their separation from Sousa is due to "family reasons" on the part of the Portuguese and not in any way connected with results.

Videoton have placed on record their thanks to Sousa, who took over as boss in May 2011.


The Szekesfehervar-based side was Sousa’s fourth job in club management.

Still just 42 years old, the former Juventus midfielder has bossed three clubs in England, in the shape of QPR, Swansea City and Leicester City.

He enjoyed a glittering playing career, winning successive Champions Leagues in 1996 and 1997, with Juventus and Borussia Dortmund respectively. He ended his playing career in 2002 at Espanyol.
