A-League team Roar say Rado not sacked

Brisbane Roar general manager Sean Dobson says Rado Vidosic was not sacked and even had a hand in his own demise as coach.

Former Gold Coast United coach Mike Mulvey was calling the shots at training on Wednesday morning as Vidosic moved into his new job as technical director.

Mulvey said Brisbane were only "one or two degrees" off where they needed to be and their season was far from over despite being second-last on the A-League ladder with three wins from 11 games.

"They just need to rediscover the hunger, how to get the kill again, whatever it takes, we'll find a way," said Mulvey, as Dobson explained the reason's behind his mid-season appointment.

Vidosic, understood to have fallen out with at least one player during his brief tenure, fell on his sword late on Tuesday following a meeting between Dobson and the team's senior players headed by captain Matt Smith.

Vidosic played a major tactical role in Brisbane's back-to-back championship wins as Ange Postecoglou's assistant.

While credited for his skills work, he was unable to transfer his technical talents to coaching and motivating the club's marquee players, gleaning just a few wins.

The reality is Brisbane's gamble to go with Vidosic after Postecoglou walked out, has not worked.

"He wasn't sacked," insisted Dobson after Mulvey conducted his first training session at Ballymore on Wednesday.

"This club has an open communication process, people understand what is going on and why.

"Rado was part of this (restructure) process, the same way he part of the process in the pre-season when we were considering our (coaching) options."

Dobson said Vidosic was better suited to the role he had been given as he had shown by the quality of international players he had attracted to the club.

"Rado is very passionate about education, very, very passionate about (player) development. For him that's where he is happiest," he said.

"Rado has been a big part of this club from day one. He knows it, it's inherent in his DNA."

Mulvey's immediate focus was Friday night's clash with last year's grand final opponents Perth Glory which he may have to win without gun striker Besart Berisha (shoulder) and young winger Dong-Hyun Do also went down at training with what appeared to be a potential serious knee injury.

He immediately put a challenge to his players saying they had an opportunity to "light up the field" against Perth on Friday night.

"I've seen one training session but there's no doubt in my mind these boys are committed," he said.

"They're hurting because of the position they are on the ladder."
