Muscat to follow in Postecoglou’s footsteps

A-League championship-winning mentor Kevin Muscat is reportedly set to succeed Ange Postecoglou as coach of Japanese club Yokohama F. Marinos.

Former Socceroos boss Postecoglou vacated the Yokohama post earlier this month to take charge of Scottish giants Celtic.

The Asian Game has reported that ex-Melbourne Victory boss Muscat, currently based in England, will replace Postecoglou in the role from next month after serving two weeks of quarantine.

It will be a return to coaching for Muscat, who was sacked by Belgian club Sint-Truiden in December after only 14 matches in charge

Muscat also succeeded Postecoglou at the Victory in October 2013 and went on to guide the club A-League titles 2015 and 2018, and the 2015 FFA Cup.

He departed the Victory at the end of the 2018-19 season.

Muscat had also been linked with a return to the A-League to fill the vacant Western United coaching job.
