Ange Postecoglou continues to rewrite football history, his recent unveiling in New Delhi as the Asian Football Confederation’s 2015 coach of the year adding to his swag of notable achievements.
What made the occasion doubly proud for the Australian Socceroos head coach was that Australia’s national team was voted the best in Asia in 2015.
Less than 18 months into his reign as the Socceroos boss, Ange Postecoglou struck gold when his regenerated team hoisted the Asian Cup in front of 75,000 delirious football fans at ANZ Stadium in Sydney in early 2015. It was Australian football’s finest and proudest moment, with victory coming in extra time to shut out South Korea 2-1. The history-making victory provided a clear signal that the new generation Socceroos had begun their emphatic march to win international recognition.
Born in Athens and having migrated to Australia with his parents aged five, Postecoglou’s impressive grounding as a premiership-winning player and coach made him the ideal choice to take charge of the Socceroos when he was appointed by Football Federation Australia in late 2013.
His focus and challenge is now squarely on Australia qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
