Former Glory coach Mitchell was dumped on Thursday night following recommendations made by the review, which was conducted by sports consultant David Hatt and initiated by owner Tony Sage.

Mitchell moved from his coaching position into the newly-created role of director of football after nine rounds of the 2010/2011 A-League season following four consecutive defeats.

"I'm very disappointed at the way this has been handled. I believe that I have a contract for another year," Mitchell told The West Australian.

"Tony (Sage) is a big businessman in town and I'm just an employee of the club. I will have to seek legal advice and see where I stand.

"I'm here living in this city by myself, away from my family, trying to do an honest job. I thought Tony was a man of his word."
