Ange Postecoglou to be confirmed as new Yokohama F Marinos coach

Steven Lowy’s administration has hit some pot holes

A News Corp reported stated that while Postecoglou was keen to return to Europe, the City Football Group (CFG)'s influence swayed him to Japan.

Koichiro Furukawa, the president of Yokohama F Marinos announced earlier today that Ange Postecoglou is joining the J1 club as its new head coach starting next season.

Ange Postecoglou will continue his coaching career in Japan.

Postecoglou had ambitions of coaching in Europe, after guiding Australia through an arduous Asian Football Confederation qualifying campaign, which culminated in a two-legged sudden death play-off against is believed Yokohama's place in the City Group's expanding portfolio of clubs may have been a decisive factor in the 52 year-old's decision.

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".

Yokohama are a faded powerhouse of the competition, with five titles, the last coming in 2004.

"Ange Postecoglou is an excellent coach, with an attractive and entertaining style of football which will suit our approach", he said.
