New Brisbane Roar coach Postecoglou takes back seat

New Brisbane Roar coach Ange Postecoglou will take a backseat today for their clash with Central Coast Mariners.

New Brisbane Roar coach Ange Postecoglou will take a backseat today for their clash with Central Coast Mariners.

Postecoglou has taken over from Frank Farina and will let Rado Vidosic take charge.

He said: ''Me arriving this late, it would be ridiculous to take over and disrupt things.

''Although I was super keen to get out there once the players started training.

''I have only really had 12 months out of the game as a coach while working in the media [at Fox Sports after coaching Australian youth teams from 2000-2007]. And you miss it. Certainly coming here today watching the players train, I can't wait to get started. But wiser heads prevailed and told me just to sit out tomorrow.''
