Product Description

Ange Postecoglou has been at the centre of football in this country for more than 30 years. In this book, he shows us the game through his eyes, from the changing room to the boardroom, to reveal how Australia must boldly reimagine its place in the world game in order to keep winning.

From his playing days with South Melbourne in the 1980s to coaching the Socceroos to victory in the 2015 Asian Cup, Ange Postecoglou's uncompromising commitment to success has coincided with the incredible rise of football in this country.

He won the old National Soccer League as a player and a coach, and, now that domestic football is reaching new heights and Australia is a force on the international stage, Ange is again at the forefront: he's won back-to-back A-League titles, led the Brisbane Roar to the longest unbeaten run in any code, and the national team to the winner's podium.

He's a man with strong opinions about how to play and lead.

Covering life on and off the pitch, Changing the Game is a privileged glimpse inside the mind of a living legend.

About the Author

Ange Postecoglou played 193 senior games for South Melbourne between 1984 and 1993. He has coached South Melbourne, Australia's youth teams, Brisbane Roar, Melbourne Victory and the Socceroos. As a player and coach he's won four National Soccer League titles and two A-League championships, including the longest undefeated streak in Australia - 36 matches with the Brisbane Roar.

Postecoglou was appointed Australia's national coach in October 2013 on a five-year deal, taking them to the 2014 FIFA World Cup and now into qualifying for the 2018 World Cup.
