Brisbane: Former Socceroos star John Aloisi quit on Friday as coach of A-League side Brisbane Roar after a poor start to the season.
Aloisi, who secured Australia's place in the 2006 World Cup after slotting home a winning playoff penalty against Uruguay, said it was in the best interests of the club that he stand down.
"For the past three-and-a-half years, I have given every minute of my life to make the Brisbane Roar a success," he said in a statement.
"Upon reflection of the current situation, I have made the difficult decision to stand down effective immediately as I believe this is in the best interest of the playing group and football club."
