Melbourne Victory has pounced on championship winner Tony Popovic and signed him as coach for the next three seasons.
Popovic replaces Grant Brebner, who was sacked last weekend after Victory’s 7-0 loss to Melbourne City.
The 47-year-old has an impressive coaching record with two A-League Premiership titles, the first one in 2012/13 with the Western Sydney Wanderers, and again in 2018/19 with Perth Glory.
Popovic is also the only coach in A-League history to win the AFC Champions League having led the Wanderers to the prestigious title in their first season in the competition.
Victory Chairman, Anthony Di Pietro, said Popovic, who will take over in July, brought extensive coaching experience and a record of success to Melbourne Victory.
