BRISBANE ROAR HEAD COACH MIKE MULVEY RESIGNS FROM ROLE
A-league winning coach Mike Mulvey offically has officially departed from the Roar earlier this morning via mutual consent.
"After a long time of thinking, I decided it was best for my development to move on as coach", Mulvey stated in his departing press conference."I have been receiving offers from various clubs throughout England, where I can further develop my coaching".
Chairman Chris Fong however said that this was an expected move from within the Roar board. "We saw he was getting offers from clubs of higher level than us. We knew that eventually he was going to leave, but we most certainly did not want him to leave at all" chairman Fong continued by saying, "we already have some applicants for the job, and should announce the next coach within the next two weeks".
Former Central Coat mariners, and experienced coach Graham Arnold is expected to take the job, whilst former perth glory coach Ian Ferguson is also thought to be in contention.
Mulvey himself used to be assistant manager to former A-League club Gold Coast, before moving to Melbourne City to coach their womens team. He then took over the Roar after a disappointing season and guided them back into a top 6 finish with a 7 game unbeatenHe then won the A-League the following season in record time, with two games spare.
Brisbane Roar fans are in shock after this resignation, and will hope that the new manager after Mulvey will help sustain the teams victorious form. The c ity of sunshine must now wait with bated breath as to who takes over.
