Coaching staff confirmed for Urawa Red Diamonds

The Reds, who in 2010 finished outside the top half of the J.League Division One Table for the first time since 2003, and fell to their worst finish in the club’s history last season under former manager Željko Petrović, have confirmed their coaching line-up for 2012:

Position Name Age
Manager Mihailo Petrović 54
Coach Takafumi Hori 44
Coach Daisuke Sugiura 37
Goalkeeping Coach Hisashi Tsuchida 44
Analyst Hiroaki Nagamine 31

(Ages calculated at 18 January 2012)

Urawa will be hoping that Petrović will be able to repeat his feats as manager of Sanfrecce Hiroshima, where he led the club to a 100-point tally in winning J.League Division Two in the 2008 season, followed by a fourth place finish and securing AFC Asian Champions League qualification for the very first time at Sanfre in the following year.
