Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou confirms new role

Outgoing Socceroos mentor Ange Postecoglou is getting ready to pack his bags and head to Japan.

It is expected to be confirmed later today, his next assignment will be with J-League club Yokohama F. Marinos.

The move will fulfill Postecoglou’s ambitions to return to club football and will be his second overseas mission. He coached a Greek third-division club, in 2008.


Postecoglou’s position as the Australian coach came under scrutiny this year as the side struggled to qualify for next year’s World Cup in Russia. However they did manage to scrape through.
