Keglevits takes over at Grazer

Grazer AK have sacked Thijs Libregts and replaced him with Christian Keglevits.

Grazer AK have sacked coach Thijs Libregts and replaced him with Christian Keglevits two days ahead of their UEFA Champions League third qualifying round first-leg match against FC Lokomotiv Moscow.

Bottom of the table
The decision was taken after Grazer's 1-0 home defeat against SV Austria Salzburg at the weekend, a result which left this season's title favourites bottom of the Austrian Bundesliga.

Short-term contract
The 41-year-old Keglevits, who has been promoted from the role of assistant coach, has signed a contract until the end of the season. Grazer, runners-up in Austria last season, overcame Moldova's FC Sheriff Tiraspol in the Champions League second qualifying round.
