Sydney coach Lavicka says owner Traktovenko ready to help

Sydney FC head coach Vitezslav Lavicka has revealed that the club's majority owner David Traktovenko is ready to help the struggling club.

The reigning champs find themselves on the bottom of the A-League table after five matches but Lavicka said that the Russian multi-millionaire is ready to do what he can to help turn results around.

''Of course, I know him well - he's a positive person, and he wants to help us,'' Lavicka told the Herald.

''He's asking about many details, and he wants to know what he can do to assist. This season I have met with him before and after each game, and this week I met with him during the week for dinner. [On Wednesday] we also had a meeting to talk about the current situation.

''He has not been happy [with the results], he wants a winning team. So do I.

"Nobody is happy at the club in this moment. But everybody believes that we can turn in the right direction. He believes that also.''

Lavicka and Traktovenko will be hoping things change for the Sky Blues when they take on Wellington Phoenix at Westpac Stadium tomorrow - kick-off is at 7:15pm local time (5:15pm AEST).
