Borneo FC has officially appointed Risto Vidakovic to fill the head coach seat previously left by Mario Gomez.

The appointment of Risto Vidakovic was announced by Borneo FC through the club’s official Instagram account on Sunday (3/10/2021).

The presence of Risto Vidakovic is expected to be able to boost Borneo FC’s performance in Liga 1 2021-2022 which has not been satisfactory.

As is known, until the end of series 1, Borneo FC was still scattered in the 11th place of the 2021-2022 League 1 standings.

The team nicknamed Pesut Etam has only collected seven points from six matches thanks to one win, one loss and four draws.

“Big hopes are in the hands of Coach Risto Vidakovic as the head coach of Borneo FC for the 2021-2022 season. Love Manyala,” wrote Borneo FC.

Risto Vidakovic is a new figure in the Indonesian football competition, because he has never handled a single team in the country.

Even so, the Serbian coach is not too foreign to the atmosphere of football in Southeast Asia.

From 2016 to 2020, he was listed as the coach of the Filipino team, Ceres Negros. Togetherness that has resulted in various titles.

At least, three Philippine League titles and one Philippine Cup title have been presented when he became the architect of Ceres Negros.

All of these titles were won in three consecutive seasons. In the 2018-2019 season, he brought the team to win a double winner.

Risto Vidakovic has a UEFA Pro license and is quite experienced in handling teams in Spain.

The reason is that he had handled Ecija Balompie (2009-2010), Cadiz (2010), and Real Betis B (2011-2012).

More than 80 matches have been played while leading the clubs from the Matador Country.

The last team Risto Vidakovic coached was a team from Maldives, Maziya, who competed in the Dhivehi Premier League.

Despite only leading the team in 13 matches, he recorded the largest percentage of wins with the team he coached at around 61 percent.

After officially becoming part of Borneo FC, the 52-year-old coach will face a new challenge in Indonesia.

The management of Pesut Etam gave a difficult target, namely to bring the team to the top of the 2021-2022 League 1 final standings.

If this target is achieved, the opportunity to stay at Borneo FC next season will be more open because Risto is contracted for one season with an extension option.
