Glory make coaching changes

Perth Glory have sacked coach Richard Garcia and senior assistant Steve McGarry effective immediately.

It comes after Perth were thumped 4-1 by bottom of the ladder Brisbane Roar on Saturday night.

Glory owner Tony Sage said the teams recent run of form at home had led to the decision.

“I would like to sincerely thank Richard and Steven for the huge level of dedication that they have shown during their two years at the helm,” he said.

“COVID-19 has had a huge impact upon the club on and off the field which cannot be over-stated and its legacy is still being felt.

“Ultimately, however, this is a results business and unfortunately, claiming one point from our last four home games is an unacceptable return.

“The difficult decision has therefore been made to part company with the Head Coach and his Assistant."

Ruben Zadkovich will lead the team for the remainder of the season.
