Sheikh Jamal's Serbian duo to arrive today
Serbian coaches Zoran Kraljedic and Berber Dabor are scheduled to arrive here today to join newcomers Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club for the upcoming football season.
"Both of them will come tomorrow (Thursday) for the entire season and the training camp will get underway on September 21 at the Bangladesh Krira Shikkha Protisthan," said Manzur Kader, the president of Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club, yesterday.
Both Kraljedic and Berber were the assistants of Bangladesh's former coach Zoran Djordjevic, who guided the Bangladesh U-23 side to clinch the football title of South Asian Games early this year.
"Kraljedic will be appointed as the chief coach while Berber will be Kraljedic's deputy," informed Manzur adding that the Serbian duo would cost them Tk 55 to 60 lakh for the season.
The star-studded Sheikh Jamal had earlier tried to rope in local coach Saiful Bari Titu, who had refused to take charge due to his involvement with the Bangladesh Football Federation and the club then changed their decision to try to rope in foreign coaches.
The season's curtain-raising tournament, Federation Cup, will be held in between October 7 to 31 before the season's second tournament, Super Cup, which will take place in December.
