Mitrovic returns to Elazigspor

Elazigspor have reappointed Milorad Mitrovic as their new coach after the resignation of Ümit Turmus.

Elazigspor have reappointed Milorad Mitrovic as their new coach after the resignation of Ümit Turmus last month.

One-year contract
Mitrovic, who previously took charge of the club six weeks before the end of last season and helped them avoid relegation, has signed a one-year contract. The club eventually finished in 13th place, with 37 points.

Young team
"I feel really happy to be recalled after three months," said Mitrovic. "I have been working in Turkey for 20 years and a couple of clubs have asked for my help for a second time in the past, as Elazigspor have done." The Serbo-Montenegrin coach added that his inexperienced side should be given time to settle under his charge.
