Sydney Olympic FC head coach Ante Juric to depart at end of season


Sydney Olympic FC has announced the departure of Head Coach, Ante Juric, at the end of the current season.

Ante has been coaching at the Club for 6 years in many capacities with a great deal of success. His nine years as a former player for the Club led to his induction into the Sydney Olympic Hall of Fame for his contributions to the Club.

Ante will continue coaching the team for the finals campaign after securing the minor premiership a few weeks ago in a very tight finish for the NPL1 competition.

Ante is fully focused on the Major Semi Final this weekend against Manly on Saturday with a 3pm kick off at Belmore Stadium, after Manly beat Blacktown City 2-1 in extra time to earn the right to play off against the Minor Premiers.

Damon Hanlin, the Club’s President, would like to thank Ante for his six years at the club as Head Coach and for his contribution over the many years he has been associated with Sydney Olympic.

“I wish Ante all the best in his future coaching roles, and it would be great if he can leave Sydney Olympic lifting the NPL1 trophy in the Grand Final in a few weeks,” Hanlin said.

Due to personal circumstances, Ante and the Club have mutually agreed that he will not be renewing his contract for next season.

In a statement, the Club said everyone at Sydney Olympic wishes Ante all the best for the rest of this season and for the future.
