Canberra United W-League coach Heather Garriock believes she is to blame for the team’s decline in form during the season.
Garriock takes full responsibility for the team’s dip in form which could see them miss the W-League finals.
“As a coach you need to be stable and I hadn’t quite found my best starting eleven. I think I need to take responsibility,” Garriock said.
Garriock told Carlos Alberto Diego on FNR_Football Nation Radio’s Football Extra she did not have the belief in herself required to coach the team to their full capabilities.
“It came down to me as a coach and not 100 per cent believing in myself,” Garriock said.
Garriock also revealed she should have had more faith in the quality of players in the squad.
“I focused too much on the opposition when we have such a quality team,” Garriock said.
Canberra United lost three consecutive games in the middle of the season and sit fifth on the table at risk of missing the finals.
Canberra play Brisbane Roar in the final match of the W-League season on Sunday.
