Sydney FC coach Steve Corica is not sure what the future holds after admitting this season has been his most disappointing as a coach.
The Sky Blues have been in the last three A-League grand finals, winning two of them, but this year they will not even play finals after missing out on the top six.
It is the first time in six years they will have not played finals and to make matters worse they were hammered 4-1 by Melbourne Victory on Saturday.
Speaking after the defeat Corica says he will take responsibility for the performances and the fact they have missed out on the six.
"Obviously, this is probably my most disappointing time as a coach," Corica said. "The last three years have been very, very good for us but we've all got to take responsibility, myself and the players included, and make sure we come back better next year."
Corica is out of contract at the end of the season and as things stand there is no sign of him penning a new one. They have one more game against Brisbane and then a decision could be made. "Not yet. So we'll see after the last game what happens," he added.
Corica sounds like a man ready to stay on though. And was even talking about the hard work that needs to be done in the off-season.
"It's all about just getting the recruitment right for next season," he added. "We know obviously Bobo's leaving, but there'll be a few others as well leaving.
"So it's about getting the recruitment right for next season and making sure we bring in the right players. There's still a lot of good players out there even though they are very tired.
"Next season is fresh - new start, new stadium as well - which is going to be fantastic. It's all about just making sure we get the right players to come in and to keep moving forward."
