The following year, AIK started by winning the Supercupen against the recent league runners-up IFK Göteborg. But the rest of the season became a big disappointment, and Stahre left the club for Greek outfit Panionios G.S.S. in April 2010. Alm remained as assistant manager during caretaker Björn Wesström's stay and later appointed Alex Miller's stay. When Miller and AIK during mutual consent split up, Alm later on was appointed as AIK's new manager in December 2010. Novaković rejoined the team staff as assistant manager together with Swärd.
