We, the Matildas, would like to acknowledge it’s been a difficult time for everyone involved. 

We would like to thank Staj for his dedication to the Matildas and more broadly for being a strong advocate for women’s football in Australia. 

As a playing group we are committed to continuing to build on the success we have achieved under his guidance.

It’s important for us now to stay focused on our common goal, which remains winning the World Cup 2019. 

Our belief within this group is unbreakable and we will continue to challenge ourselves and each other along this journey.
