Milicic joins club with no name

THE new western Sydney A-League club still hasn't got a name, but it does have an assistant coach.

Ante Milicic has left the Melbourne Heart to be an assistant to Tony Popovic.

Milicic missed out on the seat John van't Schip vacated at the Heart at the end of the season, a role since filled by former Socceroo John Aloisi.

Melbourne Heart CEO Scott Munn thanked Milicic for his contribution in the club's first two seasons.

"Ante had a substantial role in the establishment of our playing roster and implementation of the playing style and philosophy which is now our trademark," Munn said.

"While obviously disappointed to see Ante leave, we understand the significance of the opportunity which presented itself in helping establish a team in his home town."

Popovic, a good friend of Milicic, left English Championship club Crystal Palace last week to take over at western Sydney.
