GAK signings signal Euro ambition

Austrian side Grazer AK have strengthened their squad ahead of possible UEFA Champions League qualification.
Austrian Bundesliga side Grazer AK have strengthened their squad ahead of possible qualification for the UEFA Champions League.

Defensive reinforcements
GAK, who are currently second in the table - a position guaranteeing entry to the Champions League second qualifying round, have signed two defenders in Matthias Dollinger and Emanuel Pogatetz.

New terms offered
The 23-year-old Dollinger arrives from second division club DSV Leoben on a two-year contract. Pogatetz, 20, joins on a 12-month deal from the Swiss club FC Aarau. GAK have also offered contract extensions to existing players Ronald Brunmayr and Boban Dmitrovic, a Serbia and Montenegro international.

Slender lead
However, Jürgen Hartmann and Ales Ceh will leave the club at season's end. GAK lead SV Pasching by a point, and SV Austria Salzburg and SK Sturm Graz by two, in the race for second place. FK Austria Wien are champions.
