COACHES/MANAGERS: Relegated J. League Division 2 club Gamba Osaka has named former J.League Division 1 club Shimizu S-Pulse Manager KENTA HASEGAWA to the same position. Hasegawa has not managed since his previous club lost in the 2010 Emperor's Cup final (KYODO, 1/2). ... Second Bundesliga club Jahn Regensburg "has hired Poland's Euro 2012 coach FRANCISZEK SMUDA." The 64-year-old "will take charge of the team with immediate effect" and try to save the club from relegation to the 3rd League (BILD, 1/2). ... SREČKO KATANEC has been reappointed as Slovenia national team coach, a decade after ending a successful first spell that brought qualification for Euro 2000 and the 2002 World Cup. The 49-year-old has been in talks with FA of Slovenia President ALEKSANDER ČEFERIN for the past fortnight following the resignation of SLAVIŠA STOJANOVIČ on Dec. 11. Katanec will have just more than a month to prepare for his first test, a friendly against Bosnia and Herzegovina on Feb. 6, but FIFA World Cup qualification is the long-term aim (UEFA).
