Bangkok Glass part ways with coach Aurelio Vidmar

Bangkok Glass FC decided to part ways with coach Aurelio Vidmar, just 2 days after their 3-0 win over Navy FC at home in the Thai League 1 game on Saturday.

Australian manager Aurelio Vidmar has left Bangkok Glass after both parties agreed to end his tenure by mutual consent on Monday.

The club cited a “difference in direction” as its reason to part ways with the former captain of the Australian national team.

“Vidmar’s tenure was brought to the end after BGFC (Bangkok Glass) deemed that the 50-year-old Australian did not feature in the team’s plans for next season due to the difference in direction under which to take the club in the long term,’’ a club statement read.

Vidmar had become Bangkok Glass’ 16th coach in the past 10 years after he won the job last August. He leaves with his team sitting fifth in the table, 10 points behind leaders Buriram United.
