AEK’s coach Dusan Bajevic, arguably the most respected figure in Greek football, is reportedly given serious thought to stepping down from his post. The Greek-Serb coach, who has fought stubbornly to keep his team’s roster intact amid financial difficulties that have prompted long-overdue player fees and continual departure threats by players, reportedly spent a tough night Wednesday considering his own withdrawal. Reports said that Bajevic, whose team, a pre-season title favorite that has fared disappointingly so far this season, felt very disillusioned following Wednesday’s 2-2 draw against second-division club Agrotikos Asteras. Last weekend, a group of AEK fans invaded the club’s VIP stand to get closer to Bajevic and call him a «traitor.» Certain fans have not forgiven Bajevic for abandoning AEK in 1996 following a long and successful career, both as player and coach, before returning two years ago to commence a second tenure. In between, he led Olympiakos to several league titles and PAOK to a Greek Cup triumph before returning to AEK. Yesterday Bajevic was absent from the club’s midday presentation of its latest signing, Brazil’s Davidson, from second-division team Apollon Kalamarias. He also missed the team’s training session later in the afternoon, but that absence was officially attributed to an Athens Municipality invitation for a function. A visit to Athens, also yesterday, by Toni Savevski, a former long-serving and popular player, who flew in from Cyprus where he is coaching, was shrugged off as coincidental by team officials.
