Coach, Author, Keynote Speaker and Brand Ambassador
Australia’s most successful ever coach formerly in charge of the national Socceroos, now the Head Coach of Celtic FC, the most senior global appointment any Australian coach has ever achieved. Author, Columnist and Brand Ambassador.
Less than 18 months into his reign as Australia’s Socceroos head coach, Ange Postecoglou struck gold when his re-generated team hoisted the 2015 Asian Cup in front of 75,000 delirious football fans at ANZ Stadium in Sydney.
It was Australian soccer’s finest moment, with victory coming in extra time to shut out South Korea 2-1. The history-making win provided a clear signal that the new generation Socceroos had begun their emphatic march to international recognition.
Having guided his re-generated Australian team to its first-ever Asian Cup triumph and then passage to the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Postecoglou stunned the football world, soon after the Socceroos qualified for the international tournament in Russia, by announcing he was stepping down from the position he’d occupied with glory since 2013.
As Australia’s most successful ever football (soccer) coach, the Greek-born and Australian-raised mentor was widely applauded for the dignified and professional manner in which he exited his Socceroos role, reminding the public of the great honour he had been handed to oversee the national team.
Ange is now the head coach of Celtic FC, the most senior global appointment any Australian football coach has ever achieved.
Away from football, Ange Postecoglou is a successful author, keynote speaker and brand ambassador.
