It’s been a whirlwind time for Ange Postecoglou since his arrival back down under.
The Celtic boss is back in his homeland along with Celtic’s officials to promote the Sydney Super Cup which will take place in November with the former Socceroos manager bringing his current Celtic side to Australia for the tournament.
Since his arrival in Australia, there has been great media coverage of his flying visit with everyone wanting to get a chat with the Celtic boss.
It’s been natural that there has also been a keen interest in fellow Aussies Harry Kewell and Aaron Mooy who both work with Postecoglou at Celtic. There has also been interest in the 57-year olds view about Tom Rogic’s move down south to West Bromwich Albion.
Kewell could be argued to be Australia’s greatest player of all time with Postecoglou being asked what it’s been like to work with Harry Kewell.
Postecoglou looks much more comfortable around Australian press and was very quick off the mark to correct the journalist jokingly telling them it was Kewell working alongside him and not the other way around.
“No, Harry’s been great. Obviously, wherever I have travelled throughout my career, whether that’s Australia or overseas, I’ve kind of tried to open up a little bit of a pathway and give opportunities to other guys who I feel may be getting denied that opportunity.
“Irrespective of if I’ve had an association with them. Particularly in coaching, Australian coaches probably aren’t at the forefront of people’s minds, particularly in overseas markets. So, I’ve tried wherever I’ve been open up as many doors as I can for them.”
Kewell’s appointment appears to be a very solid addition to the backroom staff at Celtic with the former Champions League winner bringing a wealth of expertise to the dressing room.
