Young coaches for Estonian clubs

Estonian sides FC Flora and JK Tulevik Viljandi have appointed coaches aged 26 and 30 respectively.
Deposed Estonian champions FC Flora have appointed 26-year-old Janno Kivisild as their new coach, while rivals JK Tulevik Viljandi have turned to Marko Lelov after promoting Aivar Lillevere to managing and technical director.

Permanent appointment
Kivisild has been in caretaker charge of Flora since Arno Pijpers stood down in September, having previously been technical director. He will be assisted by Estonia captain and Flora midfielder Martin Reim.

Early starter
After retiring from playing at a young age, Kivisild coached FC Valga in 2003 and works alongside Estonia coach Jelle Goes having previously assisted Pijpers with the national team. Flora finished third this season having won the previous three championships.

Tulevik change
Meanwhile, former JK Tervis Pärnu, Flora and Tulevik player Lelov - who turns 31 in ten days' time - takes charge of a club for the first time having assisted Lillevere and coached the reserve team, FC Elva. Lillevere will handle the feeder system at Tulevik, who finished sixth in 2004.
