Reds' A-League coach selection panel quits

Adelaide United's coach selection panel has quit in protest at the appointment of Michael Valkanis as an assistant coach.

The four-member panel resigned after the A-League club said Valkanis would be an assistant next season.

The panel collectively believed their position was untenable, given they made no recommendation regarding Valkanis for an assistant coach position.

Valkanis, who acted as a caretaker head coach when John Kosmina resigned in late January, said on Wednesday he would not apply for the head coaching job for next season.

The club issued a statement saying Valkanis would be an assistant coach next season, angering the selection panel.

Among the panellists to quit was one of Adelaide's owners, Bruno Marveggio, who is also a board member.

Former Socceroos Craig Foster, John Perin and Alex Tobin also resigned from the panel.

"They are putting the cart before the horse and we have decided that we're wasting our time," Perin told News Limited.

Adelaide chairman Greg Griffin was not immediately available for comment on Thursday.

The panel's resignation comes just days after United captain Eugene Galekovic launched an unheralded outburst at management of his club.

Galekovic on Monday blamed non-football people making decisions at the club for causing cultural problems.
