Former Australian Rules Football star Craig Starcevich is the victim of the Brisbane Roarâ€™s poor financial situation.
Starcevich, who has been the Roarâ€™s strength and conditioning coach for the past two seasons, was shown the door over a month ago and is still seeking work in the industry.
"I see my role down the track as being more high-performance manager than hands-on strength and conditioning coach," Starcevich said.
"I still see the lure of being in a team and having success with a team as something I'm addicted to."
The Roar have defended their decision to cut Starcevich from their books, saying it was purely a business reason.
"Craig is a fantastic trainer. From my understanding it certainly wasn't a personal thing," Roar general manager Peter McLennan said.
"It was just... how do we look at our overheads, our running costs and tackle them more efficiently?"
