Speaking about his decision, Postecoglou explained: “You can’t keep doing everything the same and expect a different outcome. It’s pretty obvious. I’ve always done that wherever I’ve done. Unless I change things, personnel or staff, or manner of playing, then what am I doing?
“I’m definitely not that arrogant to think that just me walking in is going to give us success.”
Postecoglou added: “You have to actually make meaningful change. That’s what the club wanted. By appointing me, I presume they wanted to go in a different direction. Then it’s about making those decisions that institute change. Does it bring more out of people?”
