Matildas star Clare Polkinghorne revealed they have still not been told exactly why Stajcic, 45, was axed from the role five months out from the Women's World Cup.

Gallop addressed the players twice on Monday - but Polkinghorne says he was unable to shed any fresh light on the decision.

And she added that she hadn't experienced any of the alleged bullying or fat-shaming or the toxic environment the FFA say they have uncovered.

But she admitted to AAP: "I'm just one player and can't speak on behalf of other players.

"As players we've only been given the same information that was available at the press conferences.Β For legal reasons and confidentiality it's not going to be something that we're going to find out."

Players considered pleading to the FFA but Polkinghorne said it was made clear "that's not an option so it's not even worth talking about."

She told AAP: "Over the last four or five years, we've created a successful environment and got good results.

"It's professional football. There are always areas that need to improve on. You're never happy to settle.

"Staj has done a lot for the women's game in Australia, he's provided a lot of guidance and been a part of our success.

"Now I think it's important that we don't forget where we come from, the winning mentality or the success we've had. It's important to drive that forward ... and make this an opportunity to grow."

Newcastle Jets W-League coach Craig Deans today said his Matildas players had returned from the two day workshop in Sydney with no further insight into events.

"The girls that came back from the camp on Monday/Tuesday are a little bit, not sad, but just a bit confused and then disappointed in a lot of things that have happened, which is natural," he said after training today.

"It's all been a little bit clouded as far as details go, which everybody has spoken about. My job is now to get them in a good head space now."

He added: "It's disappointing that a coach has lost a job in the way that it's happened.

"I think the process there probably could have been done a little bit better."
