Ange Postecoglou rules out returning to Australian football


Tottenham Hotspur FC manager Ange Postecoglou has ruled out returning to coaching Australia’s national football squad, the Socceroos.

Postecoglou made the comments on Wednesday during an address he gave to the Socceroos ahead of their international friendly with England at Wembley Stadium on Saturday morning.

When asked about a future appointment with the national team, Postecoglou said: “No. I gave up that fight. It’s a much easier space for me to live in because I was so frustrated for so long. It was my biggest frustration.”

“One of my major drivers for doing what I did was to change football in Australia. And that’s the reason I left. I felt I hadn’t made an impact at all,” he added.”

“That’s easier for me to deal with than to think maybe I still can now with what I’m doing. I just think I’d be disappointed, so I’d prefer to think it’s not going to happen.”

Postecoglou resigned from the Socceroos after the team gained qualification for the 2018 World Cup. Since then, he has become one of the most-wanted men in football globally.
