“Being a Sydney boy it is an honour to be working for a club as big as Sydney FC,” said Moss.

“I’m very confident I can add more passion, experience and help improve on the remarkable job which was done last season.

“After winning the double and with the challenge of the AFC Champions League ahead, I look to contribute to the club’s success.

“It’s fantastic to be joining the club at such an exciting time and it’s a big challenge.”

Moss will have responsibility for assisting staff on a day-to-day basis on the training field with the Sky Blues set for a busy campaign.
