Steve Corica is Head Coach of the A-League Men at Sydney FC.
He played his junior football in Innisfail in North Queensland, before heading to the Australian Institute of Sport.
He played just under 500 professional games in Australia, England and Japan.
Steve’s preparation for coaching began while he was playing, and he started to gain his coaching licences before taking on an assistant role with the Sydney FC Youth Team.
He served a seven-year apprenticeship at Sydney with the Youth Team and then as an assistant to Vitezslav Lavicka, Frank Farina and Graham Arnold, before taking on the Head Coach role in 2018.
He learned from each of these coaches, and shares that his greatest lesson upon graduating to Head Coach was that "he didn’t know, what he didn’t know."
Steve believes that team and club culture are key to success. He understands that while he is the driver of the culture, that buy in from all of the players is integral to behaviours being demanded from the playing group of one another.
