The club is in a crisis of results, currently fourth in the Greek football championship. PAOK from Thessaloniki is at the top of the table, with nine points more than Olympiacos, who recently lost the city derby to Panathinaikos. This is the main reason for the Greek media to write that they are convinced that the former Red Star coach Barak Bahar will soon take over the helm of the struggling giant from Piraeus, as reported by SDNA. According to FIFA regulations, after being dismissed in Belgrade, the Red-Whites are obliged to pay Barak Bahar until he finds a new engagement.
Bahar had a signed contract with Red Star for two plus one year, which was terminated after six months. According to Israeli media reports, Bahar had a net income of 1,300,000 euros at Marakana, excluding bonuses and premiums.
