The well-travelled mentor has immense credentials boasting among others Uefa A Licence and PhD in Physical Education (football subject) from the University Of Belgrade.
The well-travelled mentor has coached teams like Interclube in Angola where he won Super-Cup of Angola 2001. As the head coach of the Botswana National Team from 2002 till 2006, the soft-spoken manager helped the Zebras to move up to about 40 places on the Fifa World rankings.
Speaking about the appointment, Celtic’s CEO Khumbulani Konco said “We are honoured to have such a vastly experienced coach in our midst. Looking at how we performed last season, we are now solely focused on rebuilding the team. We are intending to give Coach Veselin sufficient time to assess and subsequently advise on where we need to beef up the squad during this pre-season. As much as positive results are important, we won’t be putting unnecessary pressure on our new man.”
“He has worked with both youth and experienced players in the countries where he has coached and that will help us a lot. Luckily he has done research about the rich history of the team and he knows that the supporters are an integral part of the team. We welcome him and promise to give him all the necessary support so that we can all to achieve our goals,” concluded Konco.
