South Melbourne FC would like to confirm the re-appointment of Saša Kolman as Under 20 Manager for the 2015 PS4 National Premier Leagues season.
Kolman joined the club in 2014 following a highly successful playing and coaching record throughout Europe, with the former hard central defender playing professional football throughout Slovenia and Spain for the large part of his career.
His coaching career also spans throughout Slovenia, where although playing football, he also coached junior players wherever he played as a professional, including home club NK Tolmin.
In his time with the club, Kolman has been able to transform the Under 20 side into a highly competitive outfit, whilst also making it a priority to focus on player development both as a footballer and as young men.
Saša is not only a highly skilled and respected coach but also an individual that can bring the best out of those young men aspiring to one day play in the South Melbourne Senior side. His transformation of the Under 20 squad in the second half of the season is testament to
the qualities that he brings to the club and implements in his day to day coaching.
SMFC Football Director Andrew Mesorouni speaking to smfc.com.au, said “we are delighted to have Saša working with the U20 side again in 2015. He is a fantastic and innovative coach, as well as a wonderful person to have around the club”.
We wish Sasa all the best for 2015 and beyond.
