The Newcastle Jets today have confirmed the first major change in the review of their football structure for the coming season. Huss Skenderovic has been confirmed as the Head of Football Operations for the Club. 

Huss will be ultimately responsible for all aspects of A-League Men, A-League Women and Academy operations including A-League Men’s team management, Men’s player contracting to Academy development, structure, coaching education, staffing & facilities, and the Women’s team support.

Huss joined the Club at the beginning of last season and has been a key member of the Men’s 1st team structure.

“The appointment of Huss to take overarching responsibility across our Men’s, Women’s and Academy football operations is a key element in creating a structure for this Club that will guide our success.   

A critical focus has been to make sure there is clear alignment between all our Men’s, Women’s and Academy football teams.
