Amid the current febrile atmosphere, being an ‘outsider’ to the women’s game becomes a strength rather than a weakness
In recent times when an A-League club needed a new head coach two phone calls were placed. One was to Ange Postecoglou, the other was to FFA HQ. Who is the best coach out there? Who has shown promise coming through the national team ranks?
The logic behind poaching an Under-17s, Under-20s or Under-23s national team coach is clear – you’re getting a coach with access to the best resources, best facilities and best players in the country. In the microcosm that is Australian football, with few professional head coach roles going around, every time one pops up the same names emerge. Western Melbourne Group need a new coach? Ante Milicic. South West Sydney need a new coach? Ante Milicic. And the reason his name is always first on the list? Because he’s the best credentialed available coach in the Australian system.
