MARK Bosnich believes that taking over at Sydney FC is a ‘massive job’ for Steve Corica, and believes that the new boss will be judged on his results alone.
The ex-Socceroo said on Bill and Boz, that regardless of whether the Sky Blues had appointed a massive European name or a largely inexperienced manager the mountainous size of the task would remain.
“Regardless of who you appoint. Whether you appoint Carlo Ancelotti or you appoint Steve Corica, it will come down to results. He will live and die by his results, that’s the job of a manager/head coach.

“He’s been there five years as a player and seven or eight years in the backroom staff, they need the continuity.”
Bosnich believes that the impending displacement of Sydney, owing to the rebuild of Allianz Stadium will be a big factor next season, as will the weight of expectation that comes from taking over from back to back premiership winner Graham Arnold.
“It’s a big couple seasons for Sydney FC.
“One of the main reasons is the fact that they won’t be able to play at Allianz Stadium because it’s being knocked down and rebuilt. They’ll have to play at probably two maybe three home grounds, that’s not easy.
“We saw what happened with the Wanderers with that. Also coming off the back of what Graham Arnold has achieved with that team, it’s going to be a massive job for him.”
Corica was appointed as head coach of the Sky Blues on Wednesday, and will lead the club into the 2018-19 A-League season.
