Lavicka to leave Sydney FC

Sydney FC coach Vitezslav Lavicka will leave the club at the end of the A-League campaign.

Chief executive Dirk Melton announced on Friday that Lavicka's contract will not be renewed by mutual agreement.

Lavicka will remain at the club until the end of the season as the sixth-placed team battles to make the finals. The Czech arrived in Sydney in 2009 and guided the Sky Blues to the 2009-10 A-League title but the team has struggled in the past two seasons. No replacement for Lavicka has been named.

The decision was made at a meeting between Lavicka and club CEO Dirk Melton earlier this week. A Sydney FC board meeting on January 25 had given and Lavicka time to contemplate whether he wanted to continue with the Sky Blues while apart from his wife and two daughters, who have been living in Prague for the past 12 months.

"The Sydney FC Board has decided not to renew the contract of Vitezslav Lavicka beyond the 2011/12 Hyundai A-League season," said Melton. "At the same time, Vitezslav decided he wants to return home to be with his family and continue his career in Europe."

Lavicka said he wanted to focus on Sydney FC's finals push this season.

"I have enjoyed my time at Sydney FC and I want to continue to do my best and work hard with the players and staff at Sydney FC to be as successful as possible this season," Lavicka said. "But for next year I am living too far away from my family and they are very important.

"Since I came to Sydney I have been lucky to meet many good people, work with professional people - staff and players - and we managed to achieve great success in the first year.

"I will always have good memories of my time in Sydney, especially the Sydney FC Members and fans."

Melton announced Lavicka's contribution to the club would be honoured with his name being given to the annual clubman of the year award.

"Vitezslav as a man is beyond reproach," Melton said. "He is driven by values that make him a tremendous role model. He has incredible integrity, humility and honour and his warm smile, welcoming handshake and positive outlook have set a standard for everyone at the club."

Lavicka's first match after the announcement of his decision will be against the Newcastle Jets at the SFS on Sunday.
