Vlatko Andonovski was named head coach of the Missouri Comets on Thursday. He will remain on as coach of FC Kansas City. The ownership group, which owns both clubs, stressed that nothing would change as it relates to Andonovski’s role with the women’s club. The dual roles will be unique in that he will be head coach of a men’s indoor team as well as a women’s outdoor team.
“Vlatko is ready to carry on the tradition of Comets soccer and help bring home the MISL Championship that our fans deserve,” team president Brian Budzinski said in a release.
The Macedonian was voted NWSL Coach of the Year after guiding the Blues to an 11-6-5 record, good for second place in the table with only a tiebreaker separating them from the top. He had been an assistant with the Comets the last three seasons including this past campaign when he had already been named coach of FC Kansas City.
“I am excited about this opportunity,” remarked Andonovski about his new role with the Comets. “I am anxious to get this season started.”
