PSL strugglers TS Galaxy have made yet another technical team appointment just days after announcing Sead Ramovic as their new head coach to replace Owen da Gama.

Dogan has signed a three-year deal.

The 50-year-old’s last coaching job was as manager of FK Radnik Hadzici Under-19 team and joins the club at the recommendation of mutual friend Ramovic.

The Bosnian coach landed in the country on Thursday on his first trip to Africa and immediately began work overseeing training.

"I hope that we develop a style and play attacking football which will be attractive for the supporters, and I hope that we develop a playing philosophy for the club," Dogan said.

The new Galaxy addition has also worked as a director of football at FK Zeljeznicar Sarajevo which produced veteran Bosnia forward Edin Dzeko and is also a holder of a UEFA Pro Licence.  

"His primary role is to implement a particular football philosophy within all our club structures that will see our club playing the same style of football that will be enjoyed by our supporters," owner Tim Sukazi said.

"I believe that his acquisition will also create a pathway into the UEFA coaching qualifications for our young coaches.

Galaxy already has in their ranks fellow Bosnian goalkeeper Vasilijie Kolak and defender Igor Makitan also hailing from the Balkans country.
