A-League coach to visit Hobart
5 September 2019
The former national coach of the Matildas, the Australian women’s soccer team, who is now head coach of the Central Coast Mariners in the Hyundai A-League, will be in Hobart on the weekend to share his insights on coaching and the state of football in Australia.
Alen Stajcic will be the guest speaker at a networking event hosted by Women in Football Australia on Sunday night.
Secretary of Women in Football, Vicki Morton of South Hobart Football Club, said it’s a rare opportunity to meet and hear from an elite level coach.
“Alen was a highly successful coach of the Matildas with a long history coaching girls and women’s teams, so it will be wonderful to hear about his experience first hand.
“No doubt he will also have some observations about the difference between coaching men’s and women’s teams, and some hints and tips for local coaches.”
Stajcic was coach of the Matildas for five years until he was controversially sacked without cause in January 2019.
During his time at the helm of the Matildas, the team was always in the top 10 rankings worldwide.
