Ange Postecoglou confirms FFA contact

Interim Australia coach Aurelio Vidmar refused to admit if he wants to permanently replace sacked Holger Osieck after leading the Socceroos to friendly victory over Canada on Tuesday.

Socceroos coaching hopeful Ange Postecoglou indicated Football Federation Australia [FFA] have made contact with his club Melbourne Victory over the vacant national team position.

Postecoglou is understood to be a favourite for the role along with Central Coast Mariners boss Graham Arnold, with FFA chief Frank Lowy claiming his preference is for an Australian to take over from the sacked Holger Osieck.

The 48-year-old, whose only previous experience in international football came as an Australia youth coach between 2000-2007, says he would be honoured to take on the responsibility.

"I’ve had no formal contact, as far as I’m aware the club may have had some contact from FFA," Postecoglou said.

"If it comes my way and I’m considered for the position it would be a great honour. I don’t think it’s a position you should really lobby for, if the powers that be find it in their wisdom to have a look at me and offer it to me it would be a great honour.

"My gut’s telling me that we’ve got a game tomorrow night that we’re desperate to win and that’s my total focus right now. I know there’s a lot of interest around the Socceroos position but I’ve got a massive responsibility here to make sure we play well and win tomorrow night."

Prior to Melbourne Victory’s clash with rivals Adelaide United on Friday evening, Postecoglou confirmed he would not take on dual roles if the national team offer became official.

"I tend to throw myself into whatever I do and they are both enormous jobs," Postecoglou said on Thursday. "I don't think you should take short cuts or half measures with either job."

Postecoglou also confirmed that captain Mark Milligan will start Friday’s match in midfield after suffering injury prior to the recent Socceroos camp.
