Ottawa Fury FC announced Thursday that academy coach Darko Buser will assume a leadership role with the Fury FC Academy.

“Darko has been a tremendous asset to our academy since joining us last November,” Fury FC President John Pugh said. “His knowledge of the demands and standards of the high-level game both on and off the field has benefited the next generation of talent in our academy system. Darko’s commitment to player development has not only served those in our academy and first team, but players in the community that have been involved in our various grassroots programs.”

Buser holds a UEFA A License and joined Fury FC after spending 12 seasons at Chelsea FC, working directly with their academy for the last decade. Born in Belgrade, Buser developed as a player with FC Red Star Belgrade and played professionally in the former Yugoslavia until moving to the United Kingdom in 1992. He has also worked with the Serbian national team with international camps and as an opposition scout for the U-19 team.

Buser is fluent in English, Serbian, Slovenian, Macedonian, Italian, and Russian.

He succeeds Phillip Dos Santos, who is pursuing the next chapter in his coaching career with another club. “We thank Phillip for his service and wish him well on his future endeavors,” Pugh said.

The Fury FC Academy is recognized as one of the five professional academies in Canada by the Canadian Soccer Association.
