The Melbourne Victory manager Ange Postecoglou has said that he wants his team to get the top spot ahead of Central Coast after the brilliant victory over Sydney FC. After winning back-to-back titles with Brisbane Roars, Postecoglou had been given the opportunity to lead the key to the title. Even though the team did not start the league campaign in the best manner, they have been extremely good in recent months. This has seen them close the gap on the leaders Central Coast, while the recent 2-1 win over Sydney FC only helped them stay in touch with them.
After the win over this tough team, Postecoglou said that he has now set his sights on catching Central Coast at the top of the table. The two teams have played 18 games apiece, and Melbourne Victory trail the leaders by just five points. They have managed to win three out of the last five matches. This incredible run of form close the gap in recent weeks, but the manager is looking at the possibility of going to the top of the table. The form of the striker Marco Rojas has been one of the key reasons in the revival in the last few months. He has been linked with Liverpool and Juventus in the last few weeks.
“We want top spot, we haven’t shied away from that. It’s where we want to finish. We’ve been chipping away, we’re in second spot now and there’s only one spot to go. There’s only nine games to go and the Mariners are going really well. There’s a bit of a gap to bridge but we can do that over the next few weeks if we can get over teams that are around us. I’m very pleased because there was a big build up to the game,” said Postecoglou.
