Vladan Ivic is expected to return to Thessaloniki from his vacation tomorrow. He will meet with Lubos Michel and possibly with Ivan Savvides, to clear up his future with the club.
Although it looks as if Ivic and PAOK will part ways, a possible turnaround in the situation should not come as a surprise. The Serbian manager’s future is up to Savvides, however Michel has a great relationship with Ivic and wants him to remain at PAOK.
In the case that Ivic is released by PAOK, Michel has already made a list of coaches that could replace the 40-year old. Experience and financial demands will surely play a major role in the decision while Michael’s preference is an attacking style of play. In any case, both Michel and Savvides will look for a manager that will continue Ivic’s great work. The team has already built a core from this season and with the addition of a few new signings, PAOK can reach the next level that Savvidis desires.
