Former Partizan player, assistant manager and board member Gordan Petric has been assigned as the new Partizan Head Coach.
New coach spoke at the special press-conference ahead of the Mladost GAT SSL away league game:
-Not sure you all know this, but I was close to becoming Partizan coach twice already but it didn`t happen for some reason. Now, I decided to take over and I`m here to try and help. We are in a tough moment but let`s hope I can do the job, time will tell.
I`ve been through a lot as a player, coach and part of the management team. First real coaching job I had was in Slovenia but due to Covid I had no space to show what I`m capable of. Anyhow, I`m sure everything I did so far will be helpful at my new post.
I know quite a few Partizan players from my days as coaching assistant here. First thing I can do this early is to try and fix the mood within the squad game-wise, to start with simple stuff. Later on I`ll have time to do what I want with this team.
Petric will debut by the dugout on Sunday (7.30pm kick-off) for a SSL match away to Mladost GAT
