Corica, a foundation player of the club and its longest-serving manager, guided the Sky Blues to an Australia Cup triumph last month but was relieved of his duties on Tuesday morning. Assistant David Zdrilic has taken charge of first-team training.

"The Sydney FC Board has made the decision to move in a new direction," Sydney FC chairman Scott Barlow said in a statement.

"Steve is a legend of our club and has made an incredible contribution as both a player and coach over our 19-year history.

"He is a true gentleman who has always put Sydney FC first and I would like to personally thank him for all he has done."

Corica becomes the second manager to be axed this season following Rado Vidosic's departure from Melbourne City last week.

Sydney have yet to score through their opening three games and sit bottom of the A-League Men table. They will play league leaders Adelaide United on Saturday before a derby clash with the Western Sydney Wanderers on Nov. 25.
