The Sky Blue assistant has big shoes to fill as the club embark on a new era

Sydney FC has appointed assistant coach Steve Corica as the replacement for outgoing boss Graham Arnold at a press conference on Wednesday.

The 45-year-old was widely regarded as favourite for the role, since Arnold announced he was taking the Socceroos job after the World Cup.

Corica has been at the Sky Blues since the inception of the club, first as a player from 2005-2010, and then as a youth coach and an assistant since his playing retirement.

By installing Corica as manager, Sydney FC are attempting to retain the successful culture that led the club to consecutive A-League premierships, a championship and FFA cup glory.

If a foreign coach was appointed they would be keen to impart their own style, culture and values that would see the need for significant readjustment at the club.

Dutch central defender Jordy Buijs and right-back Luke Wilkshire have already left the club, while experienced centre-half Alex Wilkinson has re-signed for two years.

It is expected that marquee stars Bobo and Milos Ninkovic will re-commit to the club and Central Coast winger Trent Buhagiar has signed on for next campaign.
