Bozidar Bandovic Resigns as Buriram United Head Coach

Buriram United head coach Bozidar Bandovic has officially resigned from his post after his club’s defeat to Nakhon Ratchasima on Sunday.

Bozidar Bandovic called time on his second spell with Buriram United this morning, ending a highly successful tenure which began in 2017.

During his time with Buriram United, the Montenegrin coach has won two Thai League titles, breaking the competition’s points record on both occasions. He also led the side to the last-16 of the AFC Champions League in 2018.

Bandovic is also renowned for his work with young players. He has been crucial in helping the club promote from its academy, with a number of rising stars benefitting greatly from his coaching.

However, Buriram have been far off the pace so far this season. Bandovic leaves with the club sitting in 10th place with four losses from eight games – as many defeats as they had for the entirety of 2019.

This news follows two other high-profile resignations within the last 48 hours, as former Buriram head coach Alexandre Gama resigned from his position as Muangthong boss, and Mano Polking ended his six-year spell with Bangkok United. With severe travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it will be interesting to see who will replace Bandovic, and whether he will fill other potential Thai League managerial vacancies.
