Arthur Papas resigns as head coach of Newcastle Jets


Arthur Papas has resigned as head coach of Newcastle Jets after two seasons at the helm of Newcastle Jets.

The 43-year-old led the club to a ninth and tenth-place finish as he oversaw 52 A-League Men fixtures at the Jets.

In a club statement, executive chairman Shane Mattiske said the club had “been aware of the potential of a change, and in the background have been considering a number of potential candidates.”

Mattiske said Papas had shared his thoughts of returning to work overseas, after his past experience in Japan, India and Saudi Arabia.

“Over the past month, Arthur has been transparent with the club that he was considering a return to working abroad. This has now been confirmed and although we are disappointed to see him depart, we respect his wishes,” Mattiske said in the statement.

“Arthur has played a critical role in building a strong football program, a clear playing identity, and a competitive culture at the Newcastle Jets.

“On behalf of the club, our players, fans, members, partners, and staff, we wish Arthur well in the next stage of his career.”

The Jets, who play Melbourne Victory on July 17 in an Australian Cup playoff in Darwin, are now searching their fifth manager since the start of 2020.
