Jets sack Branko Culina

Newcastle Jets have sensationally sacked coach Branko Culina just four days out from the start of the new A-League season.

The Jets released a statement on Tuesday saying they had terminated Culina's contract effective immediately and had also applied to Football Federation Australia to have the contract of his son, injured Socceroos midfielder Jason Culina, set aside.

Jets' Chief Executive Officer, Mr Robbie Middleby said: "The decision to terminate the contracts was made after a long deliberation by the Newcastle Jets' Advisory Board.

"The Club believes that it is highly unlikely that Jason will return to the A-League in the near future, following medical advice," he added.

The Club's owner Mr Nathan Tinkler supports the position taken by the Jets' management team.

"Jason's injury could mean the Jets are without their marquee player for up to three seasons - not a good result for the club, supporters, sponsors and players," Mr Tinkler said.

"While I acknowledge the difficult timing of this announcement, I am confident in the character of the Jets' players and staff who will quickly put this matter behind them and enjoy a great season," he concluded.
