Hasi Relinquished of Coaching Duties, Vukovic Steps In for Legia

WARSAW, Poland. September 19 (PSN) – Besnik Hasi is no longer the manager of Legia Warsaw.

The Albanian was relinquished of his coaching duties shortly after Sunday’s 3:2 loss with Zaglebie Lubin.

News of Hasi being ousted from his position first came via twitter minutes after the loss by Legia President Boguslaw Lesnodorski. Lesnodorski tweeted out of frustration that Hasi will lose all duties he has with the first team.

Hasi afterwards was unable to comment about the tweets in the post-game press conference. He repeated that he is still the manager of Legia and on Monday will speak about his future with Lesnodorski.

On Monday it was officially announced that Aleksandar Vukovic would coach the Legia first team for an interim basis. Vukovic was most recently the assistant coach under both Besnik Hasi and previously Stanislav Cherchesov. In his playing days, he spent a considerable amount of his career playing for Legia, first from 2001-2004 and then later 2005-2008.

It is still uncertain for how long Vukovic will lead the first team as Legia start an unprepared search for a permanent replacement. The capital club are reportedly eager to bring in former player Jacek Magiera for the job. Magiera last coached the Legia reserves before signing as the head coach for 1 Liga outfit Zaglebie Sosnowiec.

If Legia are unsuccessful in convincing Magiera to leave his post at Sosnowiec, the club is expected to continue the foreigner route. Two candidates whom Legia are already looking into are Robert Maaskant and Ricardo Sa Pinto. Maaskant coached Wisla Krakow from 2010-2011.

Meanwhile, Legia are now negotiating with Hasi on the conditions of his departure. It can cost the capital club around one million euros if they choose to terminate his contract.
