Bruno Akrapovic appointed new College Europa manager

College Europa have appointed former Bosnian international midfielder Bruno Akrapovic as their new manager.

Akrapovic, who spent almost all of his career in the top two German divisions, is a surprise replacement for Jose Requena, who signed off his time at the Dolphins with the 9-0 demolition of Britannia. He earned 18 caps for the Bosnian national team, and the midfielder managed to score once in those matches

Further to this, a report on 5point4 suggests that Thomas Kastler, a German who set up his own football academy in Tenerife a few years ago, and who himself is a former German Third Division footballer, will take up the role of Sporting Director.

Akrapovic and Kastler look set to bring in  their own staff, and with further upheaval on the cards at College, it remains to be see how this will impact on their challenge for domestic honours.
