LaPaglia backs Kosmina as coach

Sydney FC part-owner Anthony LaPaglia has thrown his support behind beleaguered coach John Kosmina.

The soccer-mad Hollywood actor also confirmed he will remain a shareholder of the A-League club throughout 2009.

"My allegiance is with Sydney," LaPaglia told ESPN's SportsCenter program, which will air in Australia at 7am (AEDT) on Saturday.

"I think that we have finally hit the right combination and I think that bringing John Kosmina on board was probably the smartest move we could have made.

"John is perfect for Sydney, Sydney is a big city and you need a big personality.

"I also love the fact he is completely irreverent. You always know where you stand with John."

It has been a rough season for the four-year-old club, which has racked up just five wins from 18 games to sit six points outside the top four in sixth place.

Kosmina's position came under further pressure when the Sky Blues were beaten 2-0 on Saturday by Adelaide to all but end any hope the side had of making this year's A-League finals.

The club is also undergoing an ownership reshuffle with Russian businessman David Traktovenko and Australian healthcare magnate Paul Ramsay taking over as majority shareholders from Frank Lowy in March.

Sydney face off against the Wellington Phoenix on Sunday at the Sydney Football Stadium.
