Club Brugge KV have dismissed coach Emilio Ferrera after less than a year in charge and replaced him with Cedomir Janevski with immediate effect.

Disappointing run
Director of football Marc Degryse offered his resignation to chairman Michel D'Hooghe following Saturday's 1-0 home defeat by KSV Roeselare, Club Brugge's fourth successive Belgian First Division match without a win. At a board meeting on Sunday, it was decided to accept the resignation of Degryse - who had occupied the post since 2003 having been a player at the Bruges outfit between 1984 and 1990 - and also to terminate the contracts of Ferrera and his assistant Franky Van der Elst.

Janevski return
The 39-year-old Ferrera had been at the club since April 2006 after succeeding the sacked Jan Ceulemans, but only managed to lead them to a disappointing third-placed league finish in 2005/06. With Club Brugge down in fifth position this season, 12 points adrift of leaders KRC Genk, and having finished bottom of Group B in the UEFA Cup, the directors opted to turn their attentions to Janevski. The 45-year-old Macedonian, who has signed a contract until the end of the season, is a former Club Brugge player and worked at the club as a youth-team coach until summer 2005, when he followed Trond Sollied to Olympiacos CFP as his assistant. Janevski and Sollied both left the Greek champions earlier this month.
