Previously at Partizan
Varga was previously assistant to Lothar Matthäus at FK Partizan, but after the German left to take over as Hungary coach he has been looking for a new challenge. At Sartid he replaces Ratko Dostanic, who has moved on to PFC Slavia Sofia in Bulgaria.

'New experience'
"Working at Sartid will be a new experience for me," Varga said. "With Sartid third in the table [at the winter break], everyone is expecting trophies and this is a big responsibility."
