Skies blue at Sydney FC for Arnold

Maintaining Sydney FC's sizzling start to the A-League season remains Graham Arnold's only concern amid overseas interest in his services.

The Sky Blues coach was this week linked with Dutch franchise NAC Breda, who are understood to be keen on luring their former player back to the Netherlands.

And despite being in the final year of his A-League contract at Sydney FC, a tight-lipped Arnold said he isn't concerned about his long-term future.

"I'm happy with where everything's at. I'm just focusing on the game on Saturday night, and continuing to win. Everything will take care of itself," he said on Thursday.

"I'm in a good headspace at the moment. I feel very good here at the club. As I said, everything will take care of itself over time."

Arnold's negotiating power has only risen after the former Socceroos assistant led Sydney FC to a five-game winning streak to start the new A-League season.

His team didn't concede a goal over the opening four rounds, as well as their FFA Cup campaign that will culminate in a final against Melbourne City later this month.

Breda are tied to City Football Group, owners of EPL giants Manchester City and A-League club Melbourne City, and are currently in the Dutch second division.

But the 53-year-old Arnold, who scored 35 goals in 63 games for Breda between 1995-97, said he is concentrating on continuing Sydney FC's run of form against Melbourne Victory.

"It's about winning. All I want to do is win for the fans, win for the club and I'm very proud at the moment of the players and what they're doing. For me, I'm fine," he said.
