Western Sydney Wanderers academy coach Arthur Diles has left the club to take up an overseas opportunity.
One of the fastest-rising youth coaches in Australian football, Diles won the youth championship with the Wanderers U / 18 team, then the U / 20s and the Y-League side.
He's helped over 30 players progress from the Wanderers academy into the first team throughout that period, first joining the club in 2015.
As a player, Diles played across Europe for clubs including Crawley Town and Belgium's KV Mechelen.
"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."
