    COUVA, Trinidad & Tobago – TT Pro League runner-up Central FC announced Thursday the appointment of former Trinidad & Tobago head coach Zoran Vranes as its new manager. 

    The Serbian replaces former England international Terry Fenwick, who took a similar position last month with CS Vise of the Belgian second division.

    "He (Vranes) is without a doubt, one of the most experienced and probably one of the better coaches to pass through the island,” said Central managing director Brent Sancho.  “He has a tremendous record, and not just being successful on the pitch, but in the development of young players, which really interests us as a club.  That is something that we are quite high on in terms of moving forward as a club."

    Vranes signed a two year contract and expressed excitement about the future.

    "I could promise that I would work very hard with the guys and develop [the players] further – that’s definite,” said Vranes.  “It will take some time for players to adapt to my style, which is different from Fenwick.

    “I believe that we have the ability to (take the next step) and that’s what I’m here for.”

    The 63-year-old is familiar with many of Central’s squad members, having worked with players such as Sean De Silva, when he guided Trinidad to the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Egypt.

    Central FC has already qualified for the 2015 Caribbean Cub Championship, the region’s qualifying competition for the CONCACAF Champions League.
