Ange Postocogolu has announced he will quit the Socceroos regardless if we get through our playoff against Honduras.
This is a massive bombshell to throw down before a home and away tie.
You must ask yourself why a manager who has worked tirelessly with the national team for 4 years is now ready to walk away just as his tenure is reaching its crescendo?
It may well be that a vacancy exists at Western Sydney Wanderers and that it is too good not to apply for.
Ange was a titan in the A-League with his time with Brisbane Roar, there is no doubt he would be able to replicate his success At Wanderers as our club is both better financed and supported.
Our squad looks the best we have had in years, our membership has remained strong even in exile at Spotless and with a new stadium being built a long-term contract could prove to be the reason he has called it quits.
Ante Milicic his assistant and of course Tony Popovic’s assistant from our inception in 2012 is the favourite for the post.
It could just be that BOTH Ange and Ante would be maintaining their current relationship at the national level for Wanderers in the A-League.
This could leave the door open for Gombau to take over the reigns for the Socceroos and either take us to Russia, or start the rebuild for both the Asian Cup in the UAE in 2019 and the next World Cup in 2022.
There is no doubt that his rise to the national hot seat would be welcomed by the footballing public and he is already employed by the FFA.
Less than 2 weeks ago Tony Popovic announced he was going to take up a job in Turkey, today the Socceroos brains trust look headed to the Hills district, probably one, possibly two.
