Bajevic to be named AEK manager again

ATHENS - Serb Dusan Bajevic is set to be officially unveiled as AEK Athens manager on Friday for what will be his third stint at the club.

AEK announced on their official website that Bajevic took his first training session on Thursday but details of the 59-year-old's contract have not been revealed.

Giorgos Donis left AEK on Monday after just six months in charge and the team in fifth place in the Greek Super League, eight points behind leaders Olympiakos.

Bajevic's first spell with AEK was from 1988 to 1996, when he won four league titles and one Greek Cup. However, he angered many of the club's fans by quitting to join rivals Olympiakos.

The Serb's second stint between 2002 and 2004 ended without any trophies and Bajevic walked out during a game due to abuse from fans who had not forgiven him for joining Olympiakos.

Bajevic has been successful with several Greek clubs, winning four league titles and two cups with Olympiakos and one cup with PAOK Salonika. He also reached a cup final with Aris Salonika.
