A subsequent statement from the club clarified that, prior to travelling overseas on personal and business leave, Van der Pol had advised Kurz that discussions regarding his future as head coach would take place upon the former's return to South Australia.

"I returned home to Adelaide earlier this week and have indicated to Marco that I will be sitting with him following our game against Perth Glory tomorrow evening," Van der Pol said in the statement.

"Prior to my departure, Marco and I did agree with one another that we would meet once I came back and I am looking forward to this. 

"I am very proud of what we are achieving at Adelaide United; the winning of the FFA Cup and the strengthening of relationships with key stakeholders have been particular highlights.

"Most recently, today's announcement of the re-signing of Michael Marrone is another positive for us all. 

"I am excited to return to Coopers Stadium tomorrow night for what is a very important game for our boys."
