Singapore: 2018 AFC Cup ASEAN Zonal champions Home United have announced the appointment of Radojko Avramovic as head coach of the club.


The 69-year-old Serbian, affectionately known as ‘Raddy’, was famously coach of the Singapore national team from 2003 to 2012; a golden period for Singaporean football.

In his nine-year stint at the helm, Avramovic won three AFF Cups (2004, 2007 and 2012) with the Singapore Lions and was named the AFF Coach of the Year in 2013.

“I feel that I never left Singapore, everything is what I know from before," said Avramovic, who stepped down as national coach in December 2012.

"The good thing is that I know a lot of Home United players. Some of them played for the national team and some were selected for the youth team.

"It’s nice to see that there is progression with the players and that they are playing regularly with Home United."

Avramovic takes over from interim head coach Noh Rahman, who has been in charge of the Protectors for a month. Noh Rahman will continue with his original role in the club as assistant coach.

"I am also happy that I have trained Noh Rahman as a player before and now I have the opportunity to guide him as a coach too," said Avramovic.

Since he left his role with the Singapore national team, Avramovic has had spells as national coach of Myanmar and Kuwait.
