Darije Kalezic and his assistant Rado Vidosi have been announced as the new coaches in charge of the Wellington Phoenix.

The pair take over from Des Buckingham and Chris Greenacre, whose contracts were not renewed at the end of the Phoenix's last A-League campaign, which saw the club finish seventh.

After a playing career in Bosnia and Holland, the 47-year-old Kalezic has had managerial stints in Holland, Belgium, England - with Stockport County - and Saudi Pro League club Al-Taawoun.
