Rovers Appoint Serbian As Head Coach

National First Division side, Blackburn Rovers, have made a swift move to improve their lowly status by acquiring the signature of Dusan Kondic, an experienced Serbian head coach.

Kondic has been active on the African continent for many years, helping Angola’s top club Primeiro de Agosto to league titles in the early 1990s, having more success at Young Africans of Tanzania between 2007 and 2009, before being replaced by his compatriot Kosta Papic, who is now doing wonders at Black Leopards.

Rovers’ owner Nino Chidoni confirmed his outfit’s technical changes and what he expects from his head coach.

“We have made some changes with the coaching,” he told Soccer-Laduma. “But I’ve still kept Julius Dube. In the long run, Kondic is going to have to re-invent himself. I don’t want someone to go through the same motions. They’ve got to enjoy the coaching, feel the thinking behind it from the changes that are coming through on a weekly basis.

“For example, that training was great, interesting, ‘yes we’re getting somewhere’. And the only way that happens is when you start changing the way you run the team, you’ve got to make the guys enjoy it.”

Dube, the former incumbent now holds the post of joint-assistant coach with another Serbian, Zoran Mikovic.
