Former Croatia manager Slaven Bilic has been appointed as the new head coach of Besiktas, the Turkish side have confirmed.
The 44-year-old, who led his home nation to the quarter-finals of the 2008 European Championships, having qualified for the tournament from their group ahead of England, has signed a three-year contract at the Istanbul club.
Bilic takes up his first role since leaving Lokomotiv Moscow earlier in June after they only finished ninth in the Russian Premier League.
The former West Ham and Everton defender takes over the club who finished third in the Turkish Super Lig last season, but will not be entering the Europa League next term after being banned by UEFA following match-fixing allegations on Tuesday.
Bilic will earn €4.7 million over the course of his deal, Besiktas added in a statement.
