Dortmund's Langerak delighted to see Postecoglou take Socceroos reins

Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Mitch Langerak has welcomed the appointment of Ange Postecoglou as the new head coach of the Australian national team.

The former Brisbane Roar and Melbourne Victory man has replaced Holger Osieck in the Socceroos post and his former Australia U20 pupil Langerak is feeling positive about the move.

"I can only speak for myself, but I'm definitely happy with the decision. I think it's fantastic," the 25-year old told FourFourTwo Australia.

"I've obviously worked with Ange with the Under-20s. It was always really good to work under him then. I still keep in touch with the [Victory] lads and they've always got good things to say.

"It's exciting times for the Socceroos. Hopefully we can turn things around and put in a few good performances leading into the World Cup. I think Ange is a good appointment."
