Postecoglou shrugs off quitting rumours

Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou has shown he has no intention of clearing the air on the biggest question in Australian football.

During an interview with ABC’s Australian Story, the coach refused to answer whether he’ll quit as Australia’s head coach after their two-legged World Cup qualifier against Honduras.

“They just want an answer to a question and I’m not going to give them it,’ Postecoglou said.


Reports emerged earlier this month that the former Brisbane Roar coach had planned to leave the national side after the upcoming matches.

According to the commentators, Postecoglou is sick of criticism over his tactics and attitude.

He refused to confirm or deny these rumours.

“My contract ends whenever the World Cup journey ends,” he said.

“If we don’t get over Honduras, then my tenure ends, right? That’s the reality, so everything else is conjecture.

“Why would I think about anything else other than trying to get past the next two games?”

Australia will play Honduras on November 10 and 15.
