Perth Glory Football Club is pleased to confirm the appointment of Danny Milosevic as the Club’s new Goalkeeping Coach ahead of the 2014/15 Hyundai A-League season on an initial 2 year contract.

Milosevic joins Perth Glory having just completed his role as goalkeeper coach to the Australian National Women’s team with Football Federation Australia, at the recent AFC Women’s Asia Cup in Vietnam.

After making his professional debut with the Canberra Cosmos in 1995 in the National Soccer League, Milosevic went on to captain the Australian Under 20 side in the World Youth Cup in 1997 as well as playing in the German Bundesliga. In 1998, Milosevic joined Perth Glory, as one of a number of high profile signings under then Head Coach, Bernd Stange.

Milosevic went on to play 27 games in just one season for Perth Glory before being transferred to English Premier League side Leeds United, where he spent 5 years, as understudy to England international goalkeepers, Nigel Martyn and Paul Robinson, and figuring strongly in their Champions League plans. Milosevic went on to join Scottish Premier League side Celtic FC in 2004 before returning to the Hyundai A-League in 2005 with the New Zealand Knights.

“It’s a terrific signing for the Club. It demonstrates our commitment to strengthen our coaching staff ahead of the 2014-15 Hyundai A-League season.” CEO Jason Brewer said today.

“Many of our supporters will obviously remember Danny from his time with the Club, and it’s great to welcome him back, but what many won’t be aware of is his excellent work in recent years with the WA National Training Centre as well as the Matildas and various other National Women’s sides.”

“Danny brings a wealth of experience to this Club, not only on the pitch for our goalkeepers, but off it as well. That experience will be vital for the development of all our goalkeepers, including Danny Vukovic and Jack Duncan.”

Danny will commence in his role as Goalkeeping Coach when the Perth Glory team return to pre-season training in mid-June.
