Brisbane coach slams 'one rule for us, one rule for AFL, NRL'

Warren Moon has ripped into the Queensland government and premier Annastacia Palaszczuk over Brisbane Roar's forced quarantine after their A-League finals loss.

"Arthur has been with us since the inception of the Wanderers Academy and has been instrumental in helping us create a pathway from the U13s up to the Hyundai A-League first team," said Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas.

"We wish Arthur all the best in his new coaching appointment overseas."

Wanderers Academy Technical Director Ian Crook has also been key to that success and praises Diles' affect on the club.

"Arthur always put the players and their development first, which made him the perfect fit for the Wanderers Academy when we appointed him back in 2015," said Crook.

“His value to our first grade and senior teams is undisputed and he will be missed by the players, support staff and coaches at the Wanderers Academy.

"We wish him all the best in his next coaching stint and will be supporting him from afar."
