AEK Athens coach quits after latest defeat

ATHENS - AEK Athens coach Dusan Bajevic, who suffered a vicious assault by fans in August, has quit after they threw seats at him following Sunday's shock 3-1 defeat by newly-promoted Olympiakos Volos.

A group of fans kicked and punched Bajevic during a pre-season friendly on August 8 and a section of the crowd threw seats towards him after Sunday's defeat, although none hit him.

It was the 61-year-old Serbian's third stint in charge of the club, but a group of the fans are apparently enraged by his previous job coaching rivals Olympiakos.

He told reporters at a post match news conference: "I will not be talking about the game, what I can say is that I have informed the president and the players that I have resigned."

AEK have experienced a disappointing start to the new season and the Yellows are languishing 13th in the 16-team Super League after picking up just four points from four matches.
