Urawa Reds have hired former Sanfrecce Hiroshima manager Milhailo Petrovic as the new manager of the J. League first division club, sources familiar with the deal said Wednesday.

The 54-year-old Austrian took charge at Hiroshima in June 2006 and after the team was relegated in 2008, led Sanfrecce to a fourth-place finish in the top flight in 2009.
