Ange Postecoglou claims J-League title following stunning victory against FC Tokyo


Former Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou led Yokohama F.Marinos to their first J-League title on Saturday following a 3-0 victory against FC Tokyo.

Despite going down to 10 men in the second half, Yokohama claimed the victory against second place FC Tokyo, meaning they finished six points clear at the top of the league.

“We’re champions!” the ex-Socceroos boss cheered after the victory.

“I’m very proud of the players, very proud of the staff…. We’ve got fantastic supporters and I’m very happy for them.”

Postecoglou’s latest title win adds to his stunning managerial honour roll that already included Australia’s 2015 Asian Cup win, two A-League championships with Brisbane Roar and two NSL titles with South Melbourne.

Postecoglou was appointed Yokohama’s head coach in December 2017 following his surprise resignation from the Socceroos manager role, despite his successful World Cup qualification campaign.

Following the domestic success, Postecoglou as now been listed as a potential candidate as coach for the Japanese national team, as well as other European teams. Despite these rumours, Postecoglou has distanced himself from any move away from Yokohama.

“I’m definitely going to be around next year for sure,” he said.

“There’s still stuff that I want to do here. I still think we can be better.”
