Fenerbache Appoint Dick Advocaatby Jack Kitson / 17 August 2016, 15:52Tweet
As expected Fenerbache have confirmed the appointment of Dick Advocaat as their new manager.
Last week rumours were rife that the Dutchman was all set to take charge of the Turkish club, however the appointment has only been made official today (Wednesday).
The former Sunderland manager had been working as an assistant to Danny Blind with the Netherlands national team, however the veteran gaffer is now back as the main man in the dugout for the first time since leaving the Black Cats last October.
Advocaat succeeds Vitor Pereira who was sacked after just one season at the helm.
The former Porto and Olympakos boss was axed after going against his words on tactics and saying "negative things" about the club.
Fenerbache kick-off their campaign away to Istanbul Basaksehir on Sunday night. The Yellow Canaries have been installed as the narrow 7/4 favourites to win their the Turkish title for a 20th time - and thus equalling Galatasaray's record tally - but face stiff competition from both Galatasaray and Besiktas.
