Caltex Socceroos boss Ange Postecoglou has had the chance to dissect global football trends with the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson and Didier Deschamps at this week’s UEFA Conference for European National Team Coaches.
Postecoglou was the only coach from the Asian Football Confederation to attend the conference in Paris, in which Europe’s top 54 coaches reviewed this year’s UEFA Euro 2016 tournament.
Among the coaches to attend included France mentor Deschamps, Germany boss Joachim Low, triumphant Portugal coach Fernando Santos and England’s new manager Sam Allardyce.
“It was a fantastic opportunity to attend the UEFA EURO 2016 football conference to spend time talking football tactics and trends from the EURO 2016 with some of best coaches and football brains in world football,” Postecoglou said.
“Our presence at the conference in Paris shows Australia’s stature as a footballing nation is growing and interaction of this kind will only assist in the development of our football.”
