Aloisi the new Melbourne Heart coach

Former Socceroos striker John Aloisi has been appointed as the new coach of A-League club Melbourne Heart for the next three seasons.

The club chose the 36-year-old Aloisi ahead of fellow Heart assistant coach Ante Milicic.

Aloisi replaces inaugural Melbourne coach John van `t Schip, who stepped down after leading the Heart through their first two seasons in the A-League.

Aloisi is the only Australian to have played in the world's best three domestic competitions - the English Premier League, Spain's La Liga and Italy's Serie A.

Aloisi, who was the Heart's youth team coach in 2011-12, said he had learnt a lot from Dutchman van `t Schip over the last 12 months.

"When I retired here just over a year ago I didn't expect to be the head coach within a year," he said.

"I enjoyed the experience with the youth team and when this came along I thought it was a great opportunity to get into the head coaching role."

Aloisi expects Milicic to remain on the Heart's coaching staff, despite expected interest from the new western Sydney A-League franchise.

"We're good friends off the pitch too," said Aloisi.

"Ante is an integral part of this club."

Aloisi said he believed the Heart had the most exciting young squad in the A-League.

They have already re-signed 15 players for next season and hope to have their squad finalised by the time pre-season training begins in June.
