Tarxien Rainbows have named Danilo Doncic as their new coach. The committee of the Premier League club convened yesterday to choose Patrick Curmi’s replacement after other candidates were interviewed for the post.

The Serbian steered Sliema Wanderers to a fifth-place finish in the BOV Premier League but the two parties agreed to go separate ways at the end of the season.

Doncic was strongly linked with Valletta a few months ago but the champions eventually opted for Mark Miller, formerly of Hibs.

With Curmi, Tarxien managed to keep their Premier League status after a season-long struggle against relegation.

Doncic is currently in Bulgaria to complete his professional coaching licence.
