Changing the Game
"Ange Postecoglou has been at the centre of football in this country for more than 30 years. In this book, he shows us the game through his eyes, from the changing room to the boardroom, to reveal how Australia must boldly reimagine its place in the world game in order to keep winning. From his playing days with South Melbourne in the 1980s to coaching the Socceroos to victory in the 2015 Asian Cup, Ange Postecoglou's uncompromising commitment to success has coincided with the incredible rise of football in this country. He won the old National Soccer League as a player and a coach, and, now that domestic football is reaching new heights and Australia is a force on the international stage, Ange is again at the forefront: he's won back-to-back A-League titles, led the Brisbane Roar to the longest unbeaten run in any code, and the national team to the winner's podium. He's a man with strong opinions about how to play and lead. Changing the Gamecharts Ange's story of leadership, fostering a culture of success, and turning history u or precedent u on its head. He candidly relays key moments and meetings in his life, reflecting on how these have shaped his beliefs and practices as an elite coach, and gives frank views on where the current game is going right and where it's going wrong. What's revealed is a bold and impassioned account of the game he loves. Covering life on and off the pitch, Changing the Gameis a privileged glimpse inside the mind of a living legend."
