Victory confirm Postecoglou as new coach

Just four days after leading Brisbane Roar to back-to-back A-League championships, Ange Postecoglou has been confirmed as Melbourne Victory's new coach.

Postecoglou, 46, joined the Victory on a three-year deal on Thursday after rewriting the A-League record books at the Roar.

The former Socceroo and South Melbourne playing great has won four national titles as a coach - two in the old National Soccer League with South and two with the Roar.

As well as two A-League grand final wins, Postecoglou guided the Roar to a record 36-match unbeaten streak over an 18-month period.

It is an all-time Australian top-flight football code streak, breaking NSW rugby league side Eastern Suburbs' record set 74 years ago.

Postecoglou will be the Victory's fourth coach in 13 months after Ernie Merrick, Mehmet Durakovic and Jim Magilton were all either sacked or released.

Postecoglou's first match in charge will be the friendly against Greek champions Olympiakos at Etihad Stadium on May 19.

Victory chairman Anthony Di Pietro said the club's objective was success, and finding the right coach to lead them was paramount.

"We believe Ange is the right person to commence the hard work and regeneration needed to take our club to the next phase," Di Pietro said.

"I know our fans and our members are very excited about this news."

Postecoglou said he was excited about the challenge of resurrecting the Victory, who missed the finals and were a basket case for much of the past A-League season.

But he said while the Victory obviously needed to improve on finishing eighth of 10 in the previous season, he would not rush into wholesale changes to the playing squad.

"I'll take the next two or three weeks to go through that," Postecoglou said of any changes to the squad or football department.

"I've got to get my decisions right for this football club. If we want to be successful this year, I've got to be spot on.

"To be spot-on, you've got to have all the information at hand, so you're better taking your time and not rushing."

But Postecoglou warned against expecting an exact replica of the exciting, expansive football he was able to create at the Roar.

"There are some basic philosophies that are the core of my beliefs in football, but I didn't want to replicate what I did in Brisbane, otherwise I would have stayed there," Postecoglou said.

"To me, it's about something new. I want to create something new, exciting, something hopefully better.

"You don't want to be doing what's trendy now, you want to pick the next one. You want to be playing the kind of football that's successful next year and beyond.

"That's my challenge as a coach."

Postecoglou said a return to his hometown of Melbourne, where most of his family still live, had been an important driver in his decision to leave the Roar.

"It's a big club, with big expectations and I'm really looking forward to the next chapter in my coaching career here at Melbourne Victory," he said.

"This is a great opportunity and presents a whole new challenge and one that I'm really excited about, especially considering I'm a Melburnian."

Victory's players return to training on Tuesday ahead of the Olympiakos match.
