Tony Popovic quits Wanderers on A-League eve, reports

Tony Popovic quits Wanderers on A-League eve, reports”

According to The Daily Telegraph, the 44-year-old former Socceroo handed in his resignation on Sunday.

With less than a week before the A-League season kicks off, Popovic quit the club to take the reigns of the Super Lig strugglers, throwing the A-League club's season into disarray.

The news broke on Sunday morning - barely 24 hours after Popovic attended the club's family day and posed for photos.

The departure will come as a surprise, although the former Crystal Palace assistant has previously turned down offers from overseas before, including a reported bid from China.

The Wanderers will start their latest A-League season against Perth Glory on October 8 and face a real challenge appointing a new manager before their opener at Spotless Stadium.

Despite taking Western Sydney to three A-League grand finals, Popovic departs the competition without a penultimate A-League title to his name but can find some solace in his side's remarkable triumph in the 2014 Asian Champions League.

Popovic leaves the A-League with an impressive record despite having not won the championship, steering the club to the Premiership Plate in 2012-2013 and finishing runners-up in 2014 and 2016.
