Adelaide United have confirmed it’s head coach Guillermo Amor will be leaving the club after three years, after the Spaniard announced his departure during a team meeting on Wednesday.
The news comes in the wake of a 1-0 defeat to Jiangsu Suning on Tuesday night which saw Adelaide bow out of the AFC Champions League.
The Barcelona legend landed in Adelaide in June 2014 and joined the Reds as Technical Director for the 2014-15 season before taking over the reins as head coach from Josep Gombau in 2015.
During his first season Amor guided the club to an historic A-League 2015/16 Premiership and Championship double. However, during the 2016-17 season Amor struggled to improve on Adelaide’s form, with the Reds recording just five wins from 27 outings and narrowly avoiding the wooden spoon.With an amazing horse racing website here.
The club issued a statement in which it claimed Adelaide chairman Greg Griffin was “disappointed” to see Amor leave.
The Club would like to thank Guillermo for his diligence and hard work during his time with us, as well as guiding us to our long-awaited Championship in front of a packed Adelaide Oval last year,” United’s statement read.
“Adelaide United has already commenced a recruitment process to appoint a new Head Coach and will ensure a new coaching personnel are appointed by mid-June, in time for the Club’s pre-season preparations.”
Amor wouldn’t comment on his future but said he would make a public announcement when he was ready. It is thought he may return to Spain but the ex-Spain international has long been considered a candidate for Melbourne City, who are also looking for a new coach.
With captain Eugene Galekovic and playmaker Marcelo Carrusca headlining a large group of players expected to leave Adelaide United, the future of the side is at present looking pretty unstable.
