Besnik Hasi (born 29 December 1971) is a Albanian Kosovan football manager.

Club career[edit]

Born in Gjakova, SFR Yugoslavia (present day Kosovo), he began playing with his hometown team KF Vëllaznimi at an early age before joining KF Liria playing back then in the Yugoslav Second League where he begin playing as senior. He played one game with FC Prishtina in the 1991–92 Yugoslav First League.[1] He then played with NK Zagreb and FK Dinamo Pančevo (on loan) still in Yugoslavia. In 1992, he returned to NK Zagreb, now playing in a newly formed Croatian First League and he also played with NK Samobor before moving to Belgium.

Hasi moved to KRC Genk in mid-1994, then to TSV 1860 München where he played only seven times during the 1997–98 season. He returned to KRC Genk establishing himself in starting lineup, winning the Belgian Title in 1998–99 season.

Hasi moved to RSC Anderlecht in May 2000 and, despite only playing 16 matches in his first season due to injury problems, helped the club retain their league title. He played 30 games the following year, including five in the UEFA Champions League to add to his five of the previous season.

Groin and knee problems restricted Hasi to eleven league appearances and four UEFA Cup games in 2002–03, however, but he returned to fitness to help Anderlecht win back the Belgian crown the following season.

In the 2004–05 season, he suffered torn ligaments in his left knee and was out for three months, when he came back he was limited to just 14 starts as Anderlecht relinquished the title.

Hasi moved to Lokeren during the 2005–06 season. On 11 June 2007, he signed a two-year contract with Cercle Brugge.

International career[edit]

He has 47 caps for Albania, in which he scored twice. Hasi was the first Kosovar Albanian to play for Albania, and is considered by Albanian Sports media as the man who united Kosovo and Albania.[2]

Managerial career[edit]

Anderlecht[edit]

Hasi retired at the end of the 2007–08 season and became the assistant manager of his former club RSC Anderlecht. He signed a two-year contract at the club in 2008. On 10 March 2014, Hasi replaced John van den Brom as head coach.[3][4] Following two and a half seasons with the club, Hasi was sacked on 26 May 2016 after losing the league title to rivals Club Brugge.[5][6]

Legia Warsaw[edit]

On 4 June 2016, Hasi was appointed as the new manager of Legia Warsaw.[7] Due to poor results, Hasi was relieved of his duties on 18 September 2016 following a 2–3 league home defeat against Zagłębie Lubin.[8][9][10]

Olympiakos[edit]

On 9 June 2017, Hasi was unveiled as the new manager of Greek giants Olympiacos FC, penning a two-year contract worth €600k per annum.[11] The board chose him over other candidates based on his experience in UEFA Champions League qualifying matches, with the objective of leading the Reds to the competition's group stage after a year's absence. The feat was officially accomplished on 22 August 2017, as the team pulled off a 3–1 aggregate victory (2–1 at home and 1–0 away) over Rijeka in the competition's playoffs.[12] Criticized for his substandard defensive coaching and man management, Hasi was relieved of his duties on 25 September 2017[13] , due to a string of negative results including a 2–3 Champions League group stage home defeat against Sporting CP, and successive league fixtures without a win, culminating to a 3–2 away loss to arch-rivals AEK[14] despite being 0–2 up after just over 60 minutes of play.
