Sir Alex Ferguson's former right-hand man has been appointed as the new sporting director for A-League outfit Central Coast Mariners.

Mike Phelan, who spent five seasons as Ferguson's assistant at Manchester United, will be tasked with repairing the battling club's youth production line after a lean few seasons in Gosford.

Credited as the finishing school for Socceroos Trent Sainsbury, Mat Ryan and Tom Rogic, the Mariners have been unable to produce talents of that calibre since their academy was...

Football Federation Australia is taking a leaf from the NRL's book for the A-League, creating a centralised bunker facility for the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system.

A-League boss Greg O'Rourke announced the move when releasing the season draw, which sees Adelaide United host Sydney FC in the opening match on Friday, Oct. 19.

Melbourne Victory and Melbourne City will contest a derby at Etihad Stadium the following day.

O'Rourke said the VAR, which was introduced to the A-League last season,...

A-League champions Melbourne Victory have been stung by the loss of another key player with Rhys Williams departing for Saudi Arabia.

The fringe Socceroos defender was contracted for another year but has been sold to Al-Qadsiah.

It leaves coach Kevin Muscat with plenty work to do on the recruitment front after the recent departures of Besart Berisha to Japan and James Donachie to South Korea.

Williams, 29, cannot be begrudged the opportunity to take up a Middle Eastern pay day after missing out...

The second-longest A-League ban in history will stand after Newcastle Jets striker Roy O'Donovan failed in a bid to have his 10-week sentence reduced.

O'Donovan had lashed out wildly in the dying minutes of this year's Grand Final against Melbourne Victory, kicking keeper Lawrence Thomas as he attempted to connect with a cross.

The incident earned him an instant red card as his side succumbed 1-0 at McDonald Jones Stadium.

Replays did the Irishman no favours, the kick clearly striking Thomas, who...

Sydney FC might have missed out on Fernando Torres but CEO Danny Townsend remains hopeful they can hook another big fish to replace their two departed stars.

Despite a bold tandem bid from the Sky Blues and Football Federation Australia, veteran Spanish striker Torres has opted to continue his career at Japanese club Sagan Tosu rather than in the A-League.

With Keisuke Honda pricing himself out of the market, it seems likely that none of the initial six targets on the marquee shortlist FFA drew...
