Vlatko Andonovski, the former manager of the United States Women’s National Team, who stepped down in August, has been appointed as the head coach for the Kansas City Current in the National Women’s Soccer League, the team confirmed on Monday.

“Kansas City has always been and will remain my home,” Andonovski stated in a press release. “The club has impressive aspirations, and its ownership group is committed to fulfilling those ambitions.”

Andonovski concluded his tenure with the national team following the U.S. women’s failure to progress beyond the Round of 16 in the 2023 World Cup. Over his four-year stint, he led the team to an impressive record of 51 wins, 5 draws, and 9 losses.

His coaching journey commenced in 2010 when he served as an assistant for the Missouri Comets, a professional indoor soccer team, before taking over as the head coach in 2013. Andonovski also managed the NWSL’s FC Kansas City and Reign FC before assuming his role as the national team coach.

He earned the title of NWSL Coach of the Year in 2013 and 2019, guiding FC Kansas City to back-to-back championships in 2014 and 2015.

“We are delighted to welcome Vlatko to the Current,” expressed Current co-owners Angie Long and Chris Long. “Our aim has always been to be the premier women’s football club globally, and with Vlatko’s expertise, we are one step closer to realizing that goal. His deep understanding of the game and talent development will ensure the team remains competitive on the international stage and establishes Kansas City as a desired club for players worldwide.”

The Current concluded the season with an 8-12-2 record, securing the 11th position in the 12-team NWSL.
