Assistant coach Vidmar departs Melbourne City

Melbourne City's coaching department will undertake an extensive overhaul before the start of the Hyundai A-League 2019/20 Season after news that assistant Tony Vidmar has left the club.

Vidmar joined City in December 2017 and worked closely with the Hyundai A-League squad under head coach Warren Joyce.

But after the completion of the 2018/19 campaign - where City finished fifth and lost in the Elimination Final to Adelaide United - the 48-year-old has decided to part ways with the club.

"The club would like to thank Tony for his contribution over the past two seasons and wishes him the best for the future," City said in a statement on their website.

The news comes less than three weeks after City also opted not to renew the contract of Joyce for next season.

It leaves the club still searching for a new head coach and an assistant for the 2019/20 campaign.
