  • Sydney FC and their new western Sydney rivals in coach poaching war.

     

    The need for West Sydney to appoint a start-up coach almost immediately has major implications for cross-town rivals Sydney FC, with Graham Arnold one of the favourites to lead the new team.

     

    Courted for months by Sydney FC, Arnold's stock at the Mariners has risen by the week as he leads the side into the second leg of today's major semi-final against Brisbane Roar at Bluetongue Stadium.

     

    It's believed Arnold continues to hold out for a better deal than the one the Sky Blues have tabled before he will consider switching from Gosford to Moore Park.

     

    The Sunday Telegraph understands that Arnold, who is to receive an upgrade on the year he currently has on his deal with the Mariners, could be tempted by the possibility of establishing a squad from scratch at the new club.
