An official statement on the Roda JC website read, “Kalezic spoke last Sunday after the match in various media very dismissively about technical director Ton Caanen. Kalezic with his remarks crossed the decency line. Due to the untenable situation that this has arisen, Roda JC was forced to immediately lay off Kalezic.”

The Bosnian said to Fox Sports after the 3-2 defeat at home to Willem II, “I have an excellent relationship with Caanen. Only you can tell that his whole life has not been in contact with the first team of a professional football club in the Netherlands. Maybe he was a car salesman too long.”
