Arnold set to quit Mariners for Asian job

Three weeks after being overlooked for the Socceroos' job, Graham Arnold is on the verge of quitting Central Coast Mariners to coach in Asia.

Arnold will this week meet officials from a "successful top-flight side", the Mariners said on Wednesday.

The club, believed to be in Japan's J-League, has pitched to win the services of Arnold, who led the Mariners to the A-League title last season.

Arnold, who has made no secret of his desire to coach at the highest possible level, was last month overlooked for the Socceroos' job awarded to Ange Postecoglou.

But with his aspirations well known, the Mariners have been preparing a succession plan, with assistant coach Phil Moss to be promoted to head coach.

Central Coast's general manager Peter Turnbull said the club realised Arnold's success at the Mariners would lead to other suitors.

"The success of our club over the past three seasons under Graham Arnold and his staff always meant Graham would receive interest from rival A-League and foreign clubs," Turnbull said in a statement on Wednesday.

"As such, we have been planning for the past 18 months for Phil (Moss) to take on the role of head coach ... Graham has been helping prepare Phil for the position.

"We will know for certain by no later than Sunday whether or not Graham has finalised a deal in Asia."

Arnold has coached the Mariners for three seasons and previously worked as an assistant Socceroos coach under Frank Farina and Guus Hiddink, and as Australian under-23 coach.

Arnold's tenure with the Mariners was to have ended at the end of the last A-League season but the 50-year-old rejected approaches from Sydney FC and English club Sheffield United and re-signed at Central Coast.

His contract was understood to contain an get-out clause if he was offered any overseas head coaching posting, leading to the grooming of Moss for the Mariners' role.

English-born Moss has been a stalwart in NSW ranks and played under Arnold in the late 1990s.

The 42-year-old has coached NSW Premier League clubs including Manly United, and was appointed as Arnold's assistant in 2010.
