Melbourne Victory's Postecoglou ticking Liverpool off his bucket list

Ange Postecoglou will be realising a dream when his Melbourne Victory tackle the might of Liverpool on Wednesday night AEST.

The Victory coach is a lifelong supporter of the Anfield club and is eagerly anticipating the clash with the Reds at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Postecoglou also guided the A-League All-Stars against reigning Premier League champions Manchester United in Sydney on Saturday night and admits it is a great time in his career as a coach.

"Growing up in this country, loving our code, I was a massive Liverpool supporter. But the English first division seemed a million miles away and for a young Aussie boy, you just didn't envisage how you could bring that world closer," he told AAP.

"When Craig (Johnston) went to Liverpool, it just got the hairs on the back of the neck rising and realising that dream could come true.

"We've got some players who are going to play the game of their life.

"We're involved in a game that's truly global. This game throws up unbelievable situations, and it has for me in the last seven days.

"I really enjoyed Saturday night. Obviously we got beaten by a world-class opponent, but I really enjoy the fact we know what world-class football looks like, and the Australian public got to see what world-class football looks like."
