Ex-West Ham, Leeds defender Foxe and ex-Ajax keeper Didulica join Melbourne Heart coaching staff

A-League club Melbourne Heart have announced their final coaching staff line-up for the 2012/13 season.

John Aloisi will be joined by former West Ham United, Portsmouth and Leeds United defender Hayden Foxe who will work closely with the new head coach on match days.

Along with Foxe, former Ajax, Austria Vienna and AZ Alkmaar goalkeeper Joey Didulica and former head of the AIS football program Ron Smith have also been appointed.

"After an incredibly thorough search, we are excited to be able to announce the final line-up of our coaching panel for the upcoming season," said Heart CEO Scott Munn.

"We feel the updated structure of our football department will equip us to build on our debut finals appearance last season while helping further shape our playing identity and philosophy, which is centred on a commitment to player development and a modern-style of football.

"Importantly, we will also continue to offer our players access to coaches boasting substantial experience at the elite level, with each individual bringing a unique set of qualities to the Club."
