Bangladesh Premier League outfit Brothers Union are all set to appoint their third coach in four months as they have flown in Cyprus-born Serbian coach Nicolas Vitorovic to replace Italian Giovanni Scanu, said a club official yesterday.
The 27-year-old Serb arrived in Dhaka on Saturday midnight to take charge of Brothers, who are in 11th position among 12 teams in the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League with only two points from four matches.
Brothers decided to terminate the contract of Scanu on August 12 after the Italian went for a lengthy leave, citing the health concerns of his mother.
The club handed temporary charge to assistant coach Arifur Rahman Pannu, who guided the side to a 1-2 defeat against Arambagh KS in their last match on Friday.
The team management considered Vitorovic for his dual quality as he is not only a coach but is also continuing his playing career. Last year he played for Malta first division side Xaghra United FC as a striker.
Earlier, the Gopibagh outfit appointed Subrata Bhattacharya Jr. in May, but got rid of the Indian after a disappointing Federation Cup campaign before appointingScanu, who guided the team to two consecutive goalless draws before leaving on August 5.
