Australia coach Verbeek fancies A-League job

Australia coach Pim Verbeek would consider a job in the A-League in the future. He told the Sunday Telegraph: "Why not? If the facilities are good, if the ambition is good, and my opinion of the players is that every player here wants to learn.

"I have not always been with big clubs in my career. My job is to make players better, create a great atmosphere and have the feeling that they respect your work and when they're training. It's good.

"I think a few of the clubs are not happy with me at the moment. I started coaching in 1987 and I know you can't plan anything. When I left Korea, I was 100 per cent certain I should take a club and I was just waiting for December to spend time with my family as I hadn't seen them for months and years. And then Australia came along and there were so many challenges around. Let's just qualify and go to the World Cup next year and then we will see."
