Bajevic a surprise candidate for Kavala

Henryk Kasperczak is as good as gone for Kavala as the Polish manager was given a long-term leave on December 22 and is unlikely to return to the Super League club?s bench, according to reports.

Kavala has had no wins in the five games with the veteran manager on their bench and on Tuesday it also went out of the Greek Cup to Atromitos.

Press reports suggest that Kavala has already drafted a shortlist of candidates for his replacement, led by its former coach Yiannis Papacostas, who was sacked in autumn by Larissa.

Another candidate is ex-AEK and Asteras Tripolis coach Nikos Costenoglou, but the most surprising name to emerge has been that of Dusan Bajevic.

The Serb, who currently manages Omonia Nicosia with moderate results after starting the season at AEK, has a very good relationship with the Psomiadis family who own Kavala.

The Macedonian team is returning to training on December 27 and may well have a new coach by then.
