Ange Postecoglou lands in Sydney ahead of Sydney Super Cup

·

Ange Postecoglou has landed down under, returning home for the first time in three years, to promote the inaugural Sydney Super Cup.

Flanked by the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Greek Australian Celtic FC manager took part in the official launch of the newly created cup which will be held bi-annually and bring Europe’s top football teams to NSW every two years.

The Sydney Super Cup will kick off on Thursday, November 17 with Postecoglou’s Scottish side taking on Australia’s most successful football club, Sydney FC.

Celtic FC will then face off against English rival and fellow UK football powerhouse, Everton FC on Sunday, November 20.

Both games will be played at Sydney’s Accor Stadium and will see Postecoglou return to the venue of one of his most famous coaching wins, when Australia won the AFC Asian Cup in 2015.

Speaking about the Sydney Super Cup with Celtic TV in July, Postecoglou said he was proud to be leading his Scottish side on home soil.

“It’s great pride more than anything else. Knowing the great support this football club [Celtic FC] has down under and knowing that one of their own is going to be the manager – I think it will be a special time and I’m looking forward to it.”

Australia’s newest oldest club, Western Sydney Wanderers will also take part in the blockbuster three-match football event, taking on Everton FC on Wednesday, November 23 at Commbank Stadium.
