Kayserispor hire fourth manager for the season

Kayserispor reappoint Robert Prosinecki

The relegation battlers have brought in yet another coach as they seek to avoid the drop this season.

Kayserispor have made remaining in the Turkish top flight as their number one priority this season and have made yet another change to their backroom staff.

The club, currently at the bottom of the Super Lig with just 10 points, have appointed Robert Prosinecki as their new manager — their fourth for the season.

After kicking off the 2019-2020 season with Hikmet Karaman and replacing him with Turkish coach Samet Aybaba just weeks into the season, Kayserispor have shown they are not afraid to quickly shake things up in order to achieve their objective.

Aybaba also fell victim the club’s administration, however, after he, too, was shown the door due to poor performances on the pitch. Another Turkish coach, Bulent Uygun, was brought in and managed to last just seven weeks before being let go by the club on December 26. The club said both parties separated by “mutual agreement.”

Kayserispor announced on Sunday, December 29, their latest manager in the form of 50-year-old Croatian Robert Prosinecki.

He initially refused the club’s approach citing personal health issues, however, after meeting with Kayserispor officials accepted their offer.

The Germany-born coach’s most recent employment was with the Bosnian national team from which he was let go in November 2019. He returns to familiar grounds in Kayseri, having coached the club during 2012-2013 and 2013-2014.

Prosinecki has signed on until the end of the season with Kayserispor and becomes their fourth manager for 2019-2020.

He will take charge of the first team in January and oversee their winter break training camp which will be held in Antalya. He has brought Gordon Cipric and Dragan Spasic as his assistants.
