Rini Coolen Sacked at Adelaide United


Rini Coolen was sacked at Adelaide United in favor of former Reds boss John Kosmina (pictured), at least for the rest of 2011/12. Adelaide are currently bottom of the A-League ladder with just seven points from ten matches, a run that is particularly poor given they had three points through Round 2. A 3-0 home loss to previously last place Gold Coast Untied precipitated the move, though the Reds had not won in their previous four matches either. In Kosmina, Adelaide bring back a manager with plenty of top level experience. After managing both Newcastle Breakers and Brisbane Strikers in the National Soccer League, Kosmina was the top man at Adelaide from 2003-2007 and at Sydney FC from 2007-2009. That Coolen is out at Adelaide seems to be acceptable to supporters and rivals alike. The question is whether Kosmina is the right man for the job.
