Predrag Radosavljevic has been appointed as the head coach of the Sacramento USL Pro team.

The 50-year old former USA international, better known as Preki, takes the reins of the expansion franchise who will join the USL Pro league in 2014.

The former Chivas USA and Toronto FC head coach was excited about getting involved again after having his time in MLS cut short in 2010.

"I am very pleased to have been appointed head coach for Sacramento Professional Soccer," said Preki.

"I am excited to build a strong and lasting squad of players that will entertain Sacramento soccer fans and win.

"My decision to come to Sacramento was easy, as the professionalism and enthusiasm displayed by Warren Smith and his team instilled confidence in me that their support will take us forward.

"With the help of my coaching staff, I will give every opportunity to aspiring and established players from both Sacramento and the national and international soccer community to join our franchise."
