Australian Football: Milicic looking to leave on a high

Macarthur coach Ante Milicic says he has made the right decision to call it a day with the Bulls but will be looking to go out on a high.

Macarthur face Western Sydney Wanderers on Sunday in what will be Milicic’s last game in charge of the club before he returns to Croatia to be closer to his family.

No regrets for Milicic

Milicic admits it was a difficult decision to leave the club he has lead for the last two seasons, but also says it is the right one.

"I'm very comfortable with my decision," he told AAP. "It's a combination of a lot of things. I just feel for myself now is the time to not be involved any further in the A-League. Maybe a different league, a different challenge, a different age group, maybe something might excite me.

"A few people close to me say 'after a month you'll be itching to get back into it'. Maybe I will, maybe I won't. It all depends on if something's presented or not.”

Injuries strike

Macarthur have had a tough season regards to injuries and players falling sick and it is no different heading in to the game against the Wanderers.

Milicic says he will struggle to assemble a squad of 18 players but it presents an opportunity for some players to stake a claim for next season.

"We've got a few that will be out injured, a few that will be out sick but it presents opportunities to others,” Milicic added.

"There's no excuses, whoever takes the field on Sunday needs to put in the best possible performance both individually and collectively that we can get the right result."
