Ex-Australia coach Ange Postecoglou to manage J-League Yokohama

Ange got us to Russia

As the club is aligned to the City Football Group, Postecoglou will reportedly head over to England first to shadow Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola before beginning in Japan.

Postecoglou was expected to look to Europe for his next appointment but revealed Tuesday the reason for his surprise departure as Australia coach was that he was joining Yokohama, which won the most-recent of its five J-League titles in 2004.

Club president Koichiro Furukawa said Postecoglou would encourage "an attractive and entertaining style of football which will suit our approach".

"Coaching YFM will be a great challenge and I am very much looking forward to working with the club's players, and young players in particular, to achieve success".

He qualified Australia for Russian Federation by beating Honduras in a two-legged intercontinental playoff but quit on November 22, saying his four-year tenure in charge of the national side had taken its toll on him "both personally and professionally".

The job will be Postecoglou's second stint overseas after coaching Panachaiki, a Greek third-division club, in 2008.


Postecoglou previously led Brisbane Roar to two A-League titles before being appointed the Socceroos coach in the build-up to the 2014 World Cup after Germany's Holger Osieck was sacked.

Postecoglou will have at least one Australian at his disposal, centre-half Milos Degenek.

Yokohama F-Marinos are part-owned by the City Football Group (CFG), who also own English Premier League club Manchester City, Major League Soccer's New York City, Melbourne City in Australia and Uruguayan club Atletico Torque.

Postecoglou replaces Erick Mombaerts as coach.

Should Marinos win that tournament, they will qualify for the AFC Champions League, where Postecoglou could potentially be drawn to coach against an A-League club.
