Coach weighs Sydney FC player options

With a new contract tucked away in his pocket, Sydney FC coach Vitezslav Lavicka is already assessing options for new players for the 2010/11 A-League season.

Lavicka will be the first coach in the club's history to lead the team at the start of two successive seasons after signing on Tuesday to stay for a second season.

With former Socceroos striker John Aloisi's lucrative marquee player contract expiring after this season and the club unlikely to offer him a similar deal, Sydney are already considering options for a new big name star.

Lavicka said he'd held discussions about potential new signings for next season and is only interested in players who fit his team-first ethic.

"We spoke about our squad for next season .. and although we do not have anyone specific in mind so far .. any player must have good character not only as a player but he must also be a team player as well," Lavicka said.

"Team unity is our best player."

With Sydney's board having dispensed with four coaches in as many seasons, the 46-year-old former Sparta Prague mentor, perhaps wisely, said he is only interested in short-term deals.

"I like to do things step by step," he said.

"I work with good professional people here and I would like to continue one more season and after that we will see.

"I don't like signing long-term contracts, I know from in Europe many changes take place, I prefer to see how this season goes and take it from there."

Lavicka, who has guided Sydney to the top of the A-League table with just six regular season matches remaining, also said his side's continued improvement was another incentive for him to stay.

"I enjoy every day, every training session and every game, the A-League is part of something bigger and I want to be a part of something bigger next season," he said.

"It was not a difficult decision, I want to cooperate with the Sydney FC people, the players, staff and fans and enjoy some success."

Lavicka's assistant Michal Zach also signed a new deal and Sydney vice-chairman Scott Barlow welcomed the pair's decision to remain with the club.

"We have been very happy with what Vitezslav and Michal have brought to the club," Barlow said.

"Vitezslav's coaching style centres around professionalism, respect and team unity all of which he has delivered."
