Muscat replaces Postecoglou as Yokohama club manager

Muscat replaces Postecoglou as Yokohama club manager

18/07/2021, Australia, Soccer, Hyundai A-League, Article # 30393904

Kevin Muscat will look to build on Ange Postecoglou’s legacy at Yokohama F. Marinos after he was announced as his fellow Australian’s successor as manager of the Japanese club.

Yokohama confirmed Muscat’s appointment on Sunday, just over a month after league-winning manager Postecoglou departed for Scottish powerhouse Celtic.

It is former Socceroo Muscat’s first managerial position since he was sacked after just 14 league matches of his tenure at Belgian club Sint-Truiden in December.

“I am very honoured to be the manager of Yokohama F. Marinos, one of the most successful soccer clubs in Japan,” Muscat said in a statement translated from Japanese on the club’s website.

“First of all, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the club for giving me this opportunity, and I am very much looking forward to taking on new challenges in Asia’s most competitive (league).

“In order to achieve our goals, we would like to build on what former coach Ange Postecoglou has built and do our best to (perform) this season.

“(I) look forward to meeting the players and staff who will work hard to accomplish something special.”

The club said Muscat’s entry date to Japan was still “being adjusted” while he would join his team after completing his quarantine requirements.

It is the second time Muscat, 47, has taken over at a club after Postecoglou.

Muscat was Postecoglou’s assistant at Melbourne Victory when the latter was appointed Socceroos coach in 2013 and was named his successor at the A-League powerhouse.

He then went on to carve out a coaching legacy at the club he previously captained, winning two A-League grand finals, an A-League premiership and an FFA Cup before quitting Victory in May 2019.

Yokohama F. Marinos president Ryoji Kurosawa said he backed Muscat’s leadership to take the club forward.

“The most important thing in selecting a manager this time was to be a (coach) who can not only continue the attractive attacking football of Yokohama F. Marinos but also evolve it further,” Kurosawa said in a statement.

Hideki Matsunaga had been caretaker coach after Postecoglou’s departure and Kurosawa said he would stay on to support Muscat.

Melbourne City overcomes Sydney FC 3-1 to win A-League grand final

Melbourne City overcomes Sydney FC 3-1 to win A-League grand final

27/06/2021, Australia, Soccer, Hyundai A-League, Article # 30372170

Melbourne City has claimed its first A-League championship with a 3-1 grand final win over Sydney FC at Melbourne’s AAMI Park on Sunday afternoon.

The result reversed last season’s 1-0 triumph for the Sydney side in August

Kostas Barbarouses opened the scoring for Sydney FC against the run of play in the 21st minute.

But City’s Nathaniel Atkinson equalised within 90 seconds after excellent build-up play by Stefan Colokovski.

Atkinson was awarded the Joe Marston Medal as man of the match.

The major turning point of the game occurred in the 35th minute when Luke Brattan collected a second yelow card and was sent off to reduce his side to 10 men for almost an hour.

Captain Scott Jamieson put City ahead from the penalty spot late in the first half.

Scott Galloway put the icing on the cake when slammed home a long-range belter in injury time to seal a premiership-championship double in Patrick Kisnorbo’s first season as coach.

Davila and Ninkovic share Johnny Warren Medal, as Heyman wins Julie Dolan Medal

Davila and Ninkovic share Johnny Warren Medal, as Heyman wins Julie Dolan Medal

23/06/2021, Australia, Soccer, Hyundai A-League, Article # 30368096

Milos Ninkovic and Ulises Davila have become the first players to share the A-League’s Johnny Warren Medal while Michelle Heyman has been named the Julie Dolan Medallist for her standout W-League comeback season.

Sydney playmaker Ninkovic is now a two-time winner, having previously received the award in 2016-17, after he and Wellington captain Davila both received 34 votes from a panel comprised of former players, technical experts, match officials and media representatives.

Davila scored seven goals and provided seven assists while Ninkovic scored four and provided another four.

Last season’s winner, Western United captain Alessandro Diamanti, finished third on 31 votes with golden boot winner Jamie Maclaren (29 votes) and Central Coast Mariners skipper Oliver Bozanic (27 votes) rounding out the top five.

In the W-League, Heyman came out of retirement for this season and played a crucial role in Canberra United’s return to finals football, scoring 10 goals in 12 games.

The striker won the award with 19 votes ahead of golden boot winner Emily Gielnik and breakout star Kyra Cooney-Cross, who had 17 votes apiece.

Sydney forward Cortnee Vine and Adelaide’s Emily Condon rounded out the top five with 15 votes apiece.

Cooney-Cross, who recently made her Matildas debut, was named W-League young player of the season while Sydney FC defender Joel King won the A-League equivalent.

Recent Matildas debutant Teagan Micah (Melbourne City) won the W-League goalkeeper of the season award while Sydney’s Andrew Redmayne and Central Coast’s Mark Birighitti shared the A-League’s award.

Melbourne City coach Patrick Kisnorbo was named A-League coach of the year after winning the premiers plate in his first year at the helm, ahead of leading his team in Sunday’s grand final.

Jeff Hopkins won the W-League coach of the year award after leading Melbourne Victory to their first championship since 2013-14.

Maclaren was named captain of the PFA’s A-League team of the season, after receiving the most votes from his fellow players.

He was one of five City players in the starting XI, while Kisnorbo was named coach.

Davila was named in midfield while fellow Johnny Warren Medallist Ninkovic was listed on the bench.

Sydney

Thursday 28 September 2017

 

Football Federation Australia (FFA) today officially unveiled the updated Hyundai A-League Championship Trophy following the rebranding of the Hyundai A-League competition in the lead-up to the 2017/18 season.

 

While FFA considered changing the design and style of the new Hyundai A-League Championship Trophy, it was decided that its uniqueness was the very property that defined it. As such, FFA has stayed true to the original iconic design and modified it to reflect the new competition logo and style concepts.

 

“The Hyundai A-League Championship Trophy is unique, and over the past 12 seasons of the competition has become a symbol of the success of our teams, the commitment of our Clubs, as well as the passion of the league’s Members and fans,” said the Head of the Hyundai A-League & Westfield W-League, Greg O’Rourke

 

“We again thank Clive Solari and his team at D3 Design who also produced the original Hyundai A-League Championship Trophy, and also thank W. J. Sanders in Sydney for their fine craftsmanship in producing the new trophy.

 

“Next week we will see ten clubs begin the battle for the right to hold this iconic trophy aloft,” concluded O’Rourke.

 

Director of D3 Design Clive Solari was honoured that his company was tasked with updating the design. 

“I am proud to say that the new trophy has a modern and clean design that will continue to maintain its iconic characteristics,” Solari said.

 

The Hyundai A-League 2017/18 Season kicks off next Friday night (6 October) when Melbourne City FC host Brisbane Roar FC in the opening match at AAMI Park.
