How Ange Postecoglou could help Eintracht Frankfurt overcome Rangers

Eintracht Frankfurt’s Ajdin Hrustic has turned to former mentor and Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou for tips on how to beat Rangers in Wednesday’s Europa League final.

Postecoglou was Australian national team boss between 2013 and 2017, during which time he formed a bond with Socceroos midfielder Hrustic.

“Maybe I’ll have to pick up some information. We’ll see!” Hrustic told reporters in the build-up to the final.

“We’re playing in the final so obviously want to win. Let’s hope we can keep the Aussies on top.

“Ange coached me when I was a little boy. It was called V elite as in Victorian Elite. It was a little programme where the young talents got together and had a chance to show our qualities.

“He was managing and showing us some techniques and drills.

“We didn’t work only with him, we had a few other coaches there too, but he was one of the few I remember.”


There’s an even bigger reason why Hrustic has such a close bond with Postecoglou, too.

“He gave me my debut for the national team so it’s something I’ll always remember and keep in my heart.

“We’ve been in touch, I had him with the national team too and he’s a great manager. He’s proving himself and I’m happy for him.

“He’s a manager I loved working under and I’ve been following how he’s been getting on.

“You see the way he wants to play football.

“The confidence he gives players is something magnificent. It’s small things, detail that makes it count on the pitch.”
