Corica Happy To Stay As Assistant

Sydney FC caretaker coach Steve Corica says he won’t be asking to take on the role full time because it’s too early in his coaching career.

The two-time A-League winning midfielder will take charge of the Sky Blues against Brisbane Roar on Friday night, but says he’s still learning his trade as a coach and is happy to stay as an assistant for now.

“I’m not interested in the top job at the moment, I’m happy the way things are going. This will be a great experience for me of course but I think it’s only going to be short term definitely.

“I’ve still got a lot to learn and hopefully they bring in the right person for me to learn from,” he said.

Corica’s first test as caretaker comes at Suncorp Stadium where he’ll face a Roar side reeling from a run of bad results and reports of in-fighting.

“I’m hearing there could be a few getting dropped but we’ll have to wait and see,” said Steve. “We’ve got our structure and that won’t change if they have a few changes.

“They’ve had three losses in a row and we’ve had two, so both teams are going to be fighting for victory.

“We’re not going there for one point, we’re going there for three points, we need to get three points and a win.”

Kick off at Suncorp Stadium on Friday night is at 8pm AEDT.
