Estonian side JK Tulevik Viljandi have confirmed Aivar Lillevere as their new coach.
Estonian Meistriliiga side JK Tulevik Viljandi have appointed Aivar Lillevere as their new coach.

One-year deal
The 40-year-old Lillevere has signed a one-year deal after former coach Tarmo Rüütli joined runners-up FC Levadia Maardu as an assistant to Italian coach Franco Pancheri.

Second stint
It is Lillevere's second stint in charge of Tulevik after a previous temporary spell while Rüütli was leading FC Flora and the Estonian national team. Lillevere is also a former Tulevik player, having made 15 appearances for the side in the 1992/93 season.
