‘It really is a confidence issue’: Sacked Matildas coach ready for new role

Sacked Matildas coach Alen Stajcic has had his first day on the job after being appointed caretaker coach of the Central Coast Mariners.

His move to the A League comes after a messy split from the women’s national team on January 19.

Stajcic takes on the role in desperate times for the Mariners, who have just one win from 21 games.

He tells Alan Jones the task isn’t as mammoth as it might seem.

“I don’t think it’s a talent issue.

“It really is a confidence issue and that I think we can achieve that in a short space of time.

“I think we’ll start seeing some early rewards.”
