The Phoenix head coach Darije Kalezic has left the A-League football club.
It was announced last week that Kalezic wouldn't be continuing on past this season, but both parties have since agreed that the Dutchman will finish up with immediate effect.
Youth Programme Head Coach Chris Greenacre will take charge of training and Head Coach duties.
Greenacre, who scored 17 goals in an 84-match career at the Phoenix, filled in for five games in February 2013 when coach Ricki Herbert resigned.
Alongside Des Buckingham, he also stepped up after Ernie Merrick's ninth-round resignation in December 2016.
In a statement the club said both parties agreed it would be in the best interests of the club to make a decision swiftly, thereby allowing any potential replacement the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the current player group for the remainder of the A-League campaign as the club looks to rebuild for next season.
For Kalezić it's a decision made with the club's best interests at heart.
"Since the club and I weren't able to find mutual agreement on how to proceed in the future, my professional belief is that the next coach should be provided with [the] opportunity to lead the team for the remaining of the season in order to have enough time to create his opinion about current squad and his own action plan on how to proceed in the season to come.
"I would like to thank the club and the staff for their support," said Kalezić, "and especially the city's loyal fans, Yellow Fever, for their passion."
"I have had great experience in New Zealand - I came with big determination and energy for this project and I continue to believe that success can come for this football club."
Wellington Phoenix would like to thank Kalezić for his contribution and wishes him and his support staff all the very best for future endeavours.
The Phoenix are bottom of the A-League table with four wins, five draws and 12 losses.
