Josep Gombau appointed Western Sydney Wanderers head coach

Jason Dasey and PJ Roberts break down the upcoming A-League fixtures, including a battle between table-toppers Melbourne City and Sydney FC.

Western Sydney Wanderers have appointed Josep Gombau as their new A-League coach for the next three years.

The Wanderers confirmed the former Adelaide United mentor as the full-time successor to Tony Popovic on Wednesday.

"For me, this is an amazing opportunity at one of -- if not the biggest -- clubs in the Hyundai A-League," Gombau said in a statement released by the Wanderers.

Gombau coached Adelaide from 2013 to 2015 and won the inaugural FFA Cup, with the style of play he implemented at the Reds attracting high praise.

"I look forward to building on the style of play that we want to play -- attacking football that our members and fans will be proud to watch," Gombau said.

"Our first step is to build this attacking style together so that our brand of football is fast and is possession based."

After a stint in the United States, Gombau returned to Australian soccer in June last year, with Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou endorsing his selection as part of the Australian national teams' set-up.

FFA confirmed that Gombau quit his post as Olyroos coach and Socceroos assistant coach, allowing him to take up the Wanderers post.

"After an extensive worldwide search we are confident we have chosen the best candidate for the job," Wanderers chairman Paul Lederer said.

Hayden Foxe has been acting as caretaker since Popovic, the club's inaugural head coach, announced a week before the season started he was leaving to take over at Turkish club Karabukspor.

The Wanderers are away at Melbourne Victory on Monday night in round five of the A-League.
