'Thanks Ange': Football world hails impact of Postecoglou

The football world has been quick to pay tribute to Ange Postecoglou following his shock decision to resign as coach of the Caltex Socceroos on Wednesday morning.

Socceroos players, former players, media personalities and fans have all shown their support for Postecoglou, who enjoyed a hugely successful four-year stint with Australia.

Postecoglou guided the Socceroos at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil and helped Australia claim a historic first Asian Cup title on home soil in 2015.

Last week, the 52-year-old helped Australia secure qualification for a fourth straight World Cup following an intercontinental play-off victory over Honduras.
