Multiple sources have reported that Alen Stajcic, Head Coach of the Matildas, has been given his marching orders.
Following a post on twitter from journalist Tracey Holmes, social media has been buzzing with speculation.
Just this week the 45-year-old spoke with TWG podcast about the rise of women's football and changing the way the game is perceived.
FFA announce presser at midday today with Chris Nikou and David Gallop but no Alen Stajcic. Fact that Stajcic won;t be there would suggest he is no longer coach of the Matildas. Shocking.— Ray Gatt (@Gatty54) January 18, 2019
