Ange Postecoglou quit as coach of
Brisbane Roar on Tuesday, two days after leading the club to
their second consecutive A-League title.
Postecoglou will leave the Queensland club after
two-and-a-half years in charge and is set to take over as the
coach of Melbourne Victory, local media reported.
"Over the past few weeks there has been speculation about my
future as Brisbane Roar head coach - I have decided to end my

said in a statement.
"Obviously this was an extremely difficult decision on my
part but I feel that now is the right time for me to seek my
next challenge in coaching."
The Roar said they will name a new coach on Wednesday.
On Sunday, the Roar rallied to beat Perth Glory 2-1 in
dramatic circumstances thanks to a controversial stoppage-time
penalty in the Grand Final.
