Ex-Liverpool boss Houllier to speak at FFA coaches conference

Football Federation Australia (FFA) are pleased to announce the inclusion of Gerard Houllier, former Liverpool FC Coach and Technical Director of Football Federation France (FFF), as a key note speaker at the upcoming FFA National Coaching Conference.

The 2010 FFA National Coaches Conference will be held over the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of March and will include an in-depth tactical analysis of the AFC Asia Cup qualifier between the Qantas Socceroos and Indonesia at Suncorp Stadium.

The conference will be held in Brisbane and is based on the FFA National Football Curriculum.

Mr Houllier, along with a host of notable speakers including Qantas Socceroos Head Coach Pim Verbeek, will share their coaching insights through a series of presentations and practical sessions, the theme of which will be the FFA National Curriculum, which was released last year.

"Receiving instruction from a coach with the international reputation of Gerard Houllier is a great privilege and opportunity for any developing or established coach," says FFA National Technical Director Han Berger.

"Mr Houllier comes with a wealth of expertise from managing teams in the best leagues in the world and has practical experience at all levels of the game.

"Coaches at any level, from Hyundai A-League to local club coaches, will be delivered invaluable instruction from the experienced group of professionals presenting," continued Berger.

"FFA's new curriculum is the central theme of the coaches conference and with Gerard as the key speaker it will reflect on and highlight the similarities between the French curriculum and ours."
