Perth Glory coach Alen Stajcic says the club's recent aborted sale has had "zero effect" on him, and he's confident the players won't be hampered by the uncertainty either.
A Primeland Group-led consortium, headed by Melbourne property tycoon Robert Brij and his associate John Nekic, were unveiled as the new owners on October 17.
But the deal was called off less than a month later after receivers KordaMentha said the Primeland consortium failed to satisfy certain conditions of the sale transaction.
It means Glory are back in the market for a new buyer.
Previous owner Tony Sage handed back the club's licence in July amidst ongoing financial problems.
Perth have been in ownership limbo for more than three months, but Stajcic is adamant the uncertainty hasn't had a detrimental effect on performances.
"I can't speak for everyone, but for me zero effect," Stajcic said ahead of Saturday's clash with Sydney FC at Allianz Stadium.
"It's not something I talk about, it's not something I generally think about.
"I don't care if it's John Smith or anyone else who is running the club.
"Our job is to train hard and execute what we need to on the field."
Glory sit in eighth spot on the ALM ladder with just one win and a draw to show from their opening five games.
Despite the team's unconvincing start, Stajcic believes the players have handled the ownership uncertainty well.
"It certainly hasn't impacted training or how we play on the pitch," he said.
"If it's in the back of people's minds in terms of stability in their life or fear, that's potentially there.
"But we've been in this situation since I arrived, and it doesn't really have any effect on what we do at training. It just doesn't come into the narrative.
"It will be nice to know who the owner's going to be when we get one.
"But whoever it is doesn't kick a ball, and doesn't put on a training session, and doesn't have to go into a tackle or set up an attack. That's all up to us.
"I don't think we can use that as an excuse at all, not one bit."
Star midfielder Mustafa Amini, who is yet to play this season due to a serious back injury, could be in line to return as early as next week.
"He's very close. He's been back at full training for a couple of weeks now," Stajcic said.
"He played in an internal game last week and was very close to travelling (to Sydney)."
