Arnold to notch major milestone against former club

Sydney FC boss Graham Arnold will celebrate a significant milestone this weekend when he notches his 200th game as a manager in the Hyundai A-League.

Arnold, one of the most successful managers in A-League history, will become just the second coach to reach the mark in the competition.  

And fittingly, the Sky Blues mentor will bring up the achievement against the Central Coast Mariners, the club he guided to the 2012/13 Championship.

In 199 games in charge of both Sydney and Central Coast, Arnold has recorded a remarkable 108 wins, 52 draws and just 39 losses.

He is also the only manager in the history of the A-League to celebrate 50 wins for more than one club, having recorded 57 at the Sky Blues and 51 at the Mariners.

And his record at Sydney FC is incredible.

The 54-year-old has been in charge of the Sky Blues in 101 matches, winning an impressive 57 matches, with 27 draws and 17 losses.

Arnold will come head-to-head with his former club this weekend and it’s a match-up in which he’s enjoyed plenty of success in recent seasons.

In fact, since taking charge of Sydney FC, Arnold has a better record against the Mariners than any other active team in the A-League.

In 10 meetings with Central Coast, Arnold has enjoyed a stunning 80% win rate, significantly higher than against any other opposition.  

You wouldn’t back against him boosting that record against the Mariners on Saturday night on Allianz Stadium.
