NEW Lamontville Golden Arrows coach Zoran Filipovic is predicting a bright future for the club, saying their investment in junior teams augurs well for their success.
Filipovic was officially unveiled by Abafana Bes'thende boss Mato Madlala at a media briefing in Durban yesterday.
The Serbian took over from Manqoba Mngqithi, who was snapped up by neighbours AmaZulu.
This came after Usuthu fired Neil Tovey.
"I'm happy and privileged to be here in South Africa during this period, so soon after the completion of the 2010 Fifa World Cup," said the well-travelled Filipovic.
"There is no doubt that there is huge potential for players to develop further and I am happy that I am working with a club that takes the development of players seriously.
"In the short time I have been here, I see that the club is not focusing only on the senior team, but investing a lot in junior teams as well.
"This augurs well for the future of the club. We are going to compete this season, though it is not going to be easy."
Madlala said they were convinced that Filipovic, who played for Red Star Belgrade in Serbia and Portugal's Benfica, was the right man to take Arrows to greater heights.
"At Arrows we use a different yardstick to determine the success of the club and we have discussed this with the coach. This includes ensuring that our players' performances improve individually and as a team from the previous season."
Filipovic made his name in Yugoslavia as a ruthless striker with Red Star, where he spent more than a decade, appearing in 520 games and scoring 302 goals. He also still holds Red Star's record for most goals in European competitions. He scored 28 goals overall in the European Cup, Cup Winners' Cup and Uefa Cup. He also steered Benfica to the 1983 UefA Cup final against Belgium's Anderlecht.
