Shattered Aloisi just can’t work out future
AT THE lowest ebb of his young coaching career, John Aloisi looked like a man out of answers as he explained another loss for Melbourne Heart.
Solving the Heart’s issues might not be Aloisi’s problem for much longer after his side’s demoralising 1-0 defeat to second-bottom Wellington on Friday night.
Aloisi is seemingly longodds to remain in charge of the Heart by the time their next game comes around against Central Coast in Gosford on Sunday week.
The Heart are winless in 17 games since February and six points adrift at the bottom of the A-League after 12 rounds.
Two more winless games and the Heart will equal the league record of 19 matches set by the nowdefunct New Zealand Knights in 2005-2006.
Saying it was ‘‘definitely’’ the lowest point in his coaching career, Aloisi couldn’t recall a worse streak in his 22 years in professional football.
‘‘As a player I don’t think I went this long without winning either,’’ he said.
Aloisi’s record paints a sorry picture with 39 matches in charge yielding just 31 points, no interstate wins and a negative goal difference of 22.
He was at a loss to explain his side’s deflating performance against the Phoenix.
‘‘I’ve never been in a team that’s created so many chances and can’t — I don’t want to swear — win games,’’ he said.
‘‘I don’t know what else you have to do to win games.’’
