Hesterine de Reus has been removed as coach of the Matildas, the most senior position in Australian women’s football.

FFA chief executive David Gallop announced the move on Thursday, saying a review had concluded a change in coaches would be in the best interests of the team.

The former Dutch international, who was appointed in early 2013, will be replaced by Sydney FC W-League coach Alen Stajcic in an interim role for the Asian Cup in Vietnam next month.

“After a review by FFA it was determined that a change in coaches was in best interests of the Matildas program,” said FFA CEO David Gallop.

Gallop has thanked Hesterine for her efforts over the past 15 months and wished her all the best for the next stage of her coaching career.
