First A-League coach axed after just two rounds: City give Vidosic his marching orders after six-goal flogging


Melbourne City have sacked coach Rado Vidosic just two games into the A-League Men season.

City announced in a statement on Wednesday that Aurelio Vidmar would take the reins at the club until the end of the current campaign.

Vidosic was moved from coaching City’s A-League Women side into the ALM hotseat in November last year when Patrick Kisnorbo left to join French outfit Troyes.

The 62-year-old guided City to the premiership last season but oversaw a 6-1 thrashing by Central Coast Mariners in the grand final.

The Club and Men’s Head Coach, Rado Vidosic, have mutually agreed to bring to an end his coaching tenure with immediate effect.

Aurelio Vidmar will join the Club as Men’s Head Coach for the remainder of the 2023/24 season.

City have started this year’s ALM campaign with two defeats – an opening 2-1 loss to Western United and a 6-0 hammering at the hands of Adelaide United last weekend.

Vidmar will lead the side for Friday’s meeting with Sydney FC at AAMI Park.
