Australian football greats Paul Okon and Ange Postecoglou have both been linked with the Brisbane Roar coaching job.

Australian football greats Paul Okon and Ange Postecoglou have both been linked with the Brisbane Roar coaching job.

Following the indefinite suspension of Frank Farina for drink-driving, the Roar could be looking for a new coach if the board decides to sack the former Socceroos boss.

Current Gold Coast United assistant Okon has been closely linked with the job if there happens to be a vacancy at Suncorp Stadium but will reportedly have competition from South Melbourne legend Postecoglou.

Okon and Postecoglou are both former Australian national team representatives, Okon as a midfielder with close the 30 caps and Postecoglou as a defender with a handful of caps.

At present, Rado Vidosic is the interim coach at Brisbane but a replacement is on the cards if the board see fit to terminate Farina’s contract.

Current skipper Craig Moore has been linked with a playing-coach role whilst former Roar player Stu McLaren’s name has also been mentioned.
