As it turned out, Shakhtar Donetsk head coach Igor Jovicevic could head Slovak DAK in early 2022, reports Football 24.
According to the source, shortly after the Russian Federation's attack on Ukraine, the specialist, who was then coaching Dnipro 1, received an offer from DAK and said yes.
Everything changed with the decision to hold the Ukrainian championship for the 2022/23 season despite the war. Under these circumstances, Jovicevic gave his preference to Shakhtar.
The Donetsk club did not regret it - the Croatian coach led the Pitmen to the Ukrainian league title. But that did not stop Shakhtar from showing Jovicevic the door.
