In this episode, Former Socceroo Gary Cole speaks with Ange Postecoglou, who is arguably Australia's most successful football coach.
From his playing days with South Melbourne in the 1980s to coaching the Socceroos to victory in the 2015 Asian Cup, Ange Postecoglou's uncompromising commitment to success has made a big impact on the Australian football landscape.
He won the old National Soccer League as a player and a coach, back-to-back A-League titles, and led the Brisbane Roar to the longest unbeaten run in any code with a 36-match winning streak.
As Head Coach, Ange took the Australian men’s national team The Socceroos to the 2014 FIFA World Cup, and coached them to the winner's podium at the 2014 Asian Cup, departing the role before the team travelled to Russia for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
He then moved to Japan where in 2019, as Head Coach of the Yokohama F Marinos, Postecoglou became the first Australian Coach to win a J-League title.
"Find the core of why you want to coach, you've got to find out why you want to coach. What is it at the core of why you want to do this? Because as we've already said, it's not going to be a happy carefree existence." - Ange Postecoglou
