In the most unlikely of news, Pranjic is the new player-manager of Cypriot 2nd division side Omonia Psevda who have 6 Croatians on their squad as well. He has also gone through a complete transformation in the past few years, looks like a Samoan wrestler :unsure:

Bilic will be in the Premier League next season, but boy did West Brom back into it, more that Brentford were inept in their final two games

Coach breakdown for next season not counting the middle eastern guys:

Top 5 league :
Premier league - Bilic (West Bromwich)
Serie A - Juric (Hellas Verona)
Ligue 1 - Kovac (Monaco)

The rest:
Belgium first division - Leko (Antwerp)
Super Lig (Turkey) - Tomas (Rizespor), Prosinecki (Kayserispor). They got relegated to the 2nd division, so we'll what happens here.
Austrian Bundesliga - Soldo (Admiral Wacker)
Slovenia first division - Skender (Olimpija)

I think that's all of them. Will be interesting to see where Bjelica ends up. All I know is that I want him to coach the NT when Dalic eventually calls it quits.

Prosinecki will likely leave, his contract is up. There are a couple other Cro coaches in Slovenia but not high profile. Zekic is still at Sheriff in Moldova

Leko wins the Belgian cup with Antwerp and they will play in the EL next season

The Turkish FA announced there will be no relegation so Kayserispor will remain in the league, still questions if Prosinecki stays

The decision was made on Prosinecki and he won't continue with Kayserispor, he's still being linked to some other Turkish clubs though

Prosinecki stays in Turkey and becomes new manager of Denizlispor, looks like another relegation fight, they survived last season and this is their second season since promotion, mostly a yo-yo type club

He will be Pirlo’s assistant at Juventus, though Hajduk are asking for compensation but he definitely wants to go to Juve

If SN is to be believed he will do mostly the ‘grunt’ work, preparations/training, as Pirlo is still inexperienced but Pirlo will have the say in team selection, transfers etc.

Burić once again manager of Admira Wacker in Austria. He managed them in 2017 while their previous manager was Soldo

Couple of early success stories, couple of firings and possible dissention with Bilic and the owners

First the good news: Ivan Leko's Antwerp are the early leaders in the Belgian league and they started off their EL campaign with a win over Ludogorets. Juric's Verona is off to a good start too, they recently went to Juve and got a point. He's done a good job everywhere he went but because of the way his NT tenure went as a player he largely goes ignored by the Cro media it seems

Despite winning all 15 league matches this season and comfortably top of the table, Zoran Zekic has been sacked by Sheriff Tiraspol, largely due to failure to qualify for the EL and the club not being happy with some of his Croatian signings. Ante Cacic was sacked by his Egyptian club after losing in the final of the Confederation Cup (African's version of the Europa League), seems harsh but thats how it goes over there

There are some rumors Bilic could resign as WBA manager, basically the club sold one of its players to some Saudi side without his approval. Listening to a WBA podcast, they seem to think their owner is pinching pennies since the virus and has no real ambition for this season, and it shows, WBA look like they have the weakest team on paper in the league, however luckily for them there are a handful of bad teams in the league and despite being winless they are above the relegation zone for now
