Anticipated Aykut Kocaman named as Fenerbahce coach

Fenerbahce have ended German Christoph Daum's second spell as coach and replaced him with former Fenerbahce player Aykut Kocaman.

Kocaman, 45, played for the team between 1988-96 and was recently sporting director.

He will sign a contract on Tuesday. Fenerbahce will pay Daum €2.3 million in compensation after cancelling his contract.

"Fenerbahce have always been a part of my life and they will remain so," the 56-year-old Daum was quoted as saying. "I wish them all the best for their Uefa Champions League campaign."

That will begin in the third qualifying round at the end of July.
