Sliema ASC appoint Dejan Milakovic

Sliema Frank Salt Real Estate have announced the appointment of Serbian Dejan Milakovic who will be replacing Paul Privitera as first team coach. In a press release, the Club thanked Paul Privitera for his dedication and sterling service given to the club in recent years both as a player and as coach.

Milakovic joins the blues on the back of an extremely successful season, having won the treble as Igor Milanovic’s assistant at Pro Recco where they won the Champions League, Italian Scudetto as well as the Italian Cup. Milakovic started his career as a player at Partizan Belgrade before moving to rivals Red Star. He featured for Yugoslavia at youth level. Following his retirement as a player, he started his coaching career with Red Star’s youths and then moved on to another top division Belgrade club, Singidunum, first as a youth coach and ultimately as first team coach, before being picked up by Igor Milanovic to be his right hand man at arguably the best European water polo club at the moment. Prior to his involvement with Recco, Milakovic was also part of the Serbian national team coaching staff at youth and B team level.

He took charge of his first training session on Wednesday together with assistant coach Clint Debono and shall be on the bench for Sliema’s next Premier Division match against Neptunes on Sunday.

Sliema ASC jappuntaw lil Dejan Milakovic

Sliema Frank Salt Real Estate għadhom kif ħabbru l-ħatra tas-Serb Dejan Milakovic li se jkun qed jieħu post Pawlu Privitera bħala kowċ tal-ewwel skwadra Slimiża. Fi press release, il-klabb ta’ Sliema xtaq jirringrazzja lil Pawlu Privitera għas-servizz u d-dedikazzjoni tiegħu lejn il-klabb tul l-aħħar snin, kemm bħala plejer kif ukoll bħala kowċ.

Milakovic ingħaqad mal-klabb tas-Sliema, propju wara staġun eċċezzjonali ma’ Pro Recco, fejn bħala assistent ta’ Igor Milanovic, rebaħ iċ-Champions League, il-Kampjonat Taljan, kif ukoll il-Coppa Italia. Milakovic beda’ l-karriera tiegħu bħala plejer ta’ Partizan Belgrade, qabel ma’ ngħaqad mar-rivali Red Star. Kien ukoll jifforma parti mill-iskwadra taż-żgħar tal-Jugoslavia. Hekk kif temm il-karriera tiegħu bħala plejer, beda jikkowċja l-youths ta’ Red Star, biex mbagħad nħatar bħala kowċ tal-kbar ta’ Singidunum, klabb ieħor mill-għola diviżjoni Serba. Qabel ma ntgħażel minn Igor Milakovic mal-eventwalment Champions ta’ l-Ewropa, Pro Recco, Milakovic kien jifforma parti mill-istaff tekniku tal-youths u t-tieni skwadra tas-Serbja.

Is-Serb ħa f’idejh it-tmexxija tat-tim flimkien mal-assistent Clint Debono nhar il-Erbgħa, u huwa mistenni jkun fuq-il-bank ta’ Sliema mil-logħba tal-Premier League li jmiss kontra Neptunes nhar il-Ħadd li gej.
