Berisha gives Roar scare before ACL match

The sight of Besart Berisha clutching ice to his jaw after a training incident ensured Ange Postecoglou's departure was the last thing on the mind of new Brisbane Roar coach Rado Vidosic.

The Roar wasted no time after Postecoglou linked with Melbourne Victory, announcing a major restructuring on Friday while preparing to complete their Asian Champions League campaign.

However, Berisha's heavy collision with a teammate at training for Tuesday's crunch ACL clash with FC Tokyo in Japan gave Vidosic even more to think about.

Two days after officially taking over the reins, Vidosic for a moment contemplated the Roar's worst nightmare - Golden Boot winner Berisha missing an ACL match they must win by three goals to keep their campaign alive.

Berisha finished Friday's session on the sidelines with his jaw being iced.

But Vidosic was confident the man who scored a remarkable 21 goals in his debut A-League season would fly out this weekend.

"I don't think there is any problem with him," said Vidosic, who will be without winger Henrique who will remain in Brisbane with his pregnant wife.

Life has been a blur for Vidosic since ending a seven-year apprenticeship at the Roar by being named coach - and he wouldn't have it any other way.

"It's fortunate that I have two more (ACL) games (this season) - we had a training session after the announcement and yesterday I was at home preparing for the Tokyo game so it's been full on," he said.

"It's good that we have a trip to Japan. It's what they are concentrating on more than anything else - we want to go over there and perform well."

If the Roar were upset over Postecoglou's defection, it wasn't obvious.

"They seem pretty happy. Wednesday was one of our best training sessions and today was pretty intense - they look pretty switched on," said Vidosic.

Vidosic has already begun tweaking Postecoglou's winning formula, saying he will experiment with strengthening the midfield defence in Japan.

"But we still want to win our last two (ACL) games - that's the No.1 plan," he said.

Meanwhile, the Roar announced former chief financial officer Sean Dobson as their general manager in a club restructuring following a six-month review.

"Dobson will oversee the club's operational management and has also been appointed to the board of directors," a Roar statement said.

Chief executive Michael Bowers has left the club.

Roar director Chris Fong has been appointed vice-chairman.
