Rado Vidošić (born in SFR Yugoslavia) is an Australian football (soccer) manager, who is the assistant manager of A-League club Sydney FC.[1]

Managerial career[edit]

Vidošić had served as the assistant coach of Brisbane Roar since their inaugural A-League season. He served as the club's caretaker manager from 10 October 2009 to 15 October 2009 after manager Frank Farina was sacked due to drink-driving charges. He was succeeded by former Australia U-20 team manager Ange Postecoglou. On 25 April 2012, he was named as the new manager of Brisbane, following the departure of Ange Postecoglou, who left to manage his hometown club Melbourne Victory.[2]

On 18 December 2012, just 11 games into the season, after a poor run of results in the 2012-13 season and with the Roar sitting 9th out of 10 teams on the ladder, Vidosic was reassigned to the role of technical director, and was replaced by Melbourne Victory W-League manager Mike Mulvey as interim coach until May 2013.

In June 2013, Sydney FC signed Vidošić as Assistant Coach.[3] Vidosic will now be working alongside Frank Farina once again.

Personal life[edit]

His son is Australia national football team and Adelaide United player Dario Vidošić.[4] On 4 November 2012, Rado Vidosic managed the Brisbane Roar against Dario Vidosic's Adelaide United at Suncorp Stadium, with Dario's goal in the 3rd minute of the match securing victory for United over his father's team.
