BREAKING: Van Marwijk appointed new Socceroos coach

Dutchman Bert Van Marwijk has been appointed head coach of the Socceroos for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
By SBS The World Game
25 JAN 2018 - 11:09 AM  UPDATED 30 MINS AGO

Football Federation Australia (FFA) confirmed the appointment of Van Marwijk, who coach the Netherlands to the World Cup final in 2010, on Wednesday.

FFA Chairman Steven Lowy said the Dutch coach?s experience was the perfect blend for the Socceroos? Russian campaign.

?This is a great result for Australian football,? said Lowy.

?Bert Van Marwijk is world class. He took the Netherlands to the World Cup Final in 2010, he led the Saudi Arabian team to qualify directly for this year?s finals and most importantly, he knows a lot about our team and how they play because he studied them closely as an opposition manager in the same group.

"These experiences make him a compelling choice.?

Lowy paid tribute to Ange Postecoglou, the support staff and especially the players for achieving qualification.

?We now go to Russia with a battle-hardened group of players and support staff who made it to the finals by the toughest road possible.

"In Bert Van Marwijk we have a manager who can achieve great things with this team. And we will ensure they have the resources necessary to give them the highest level of preparation.?

FFA Chief Executive Officer David Gallop agreed terms with the former Nethe

Club Publicly Blames Moore for Shirtgate

EXCLUSIVE: Moore named and blamed for Roar?s shirt fiasco

Moore, who was working out a two-month notice period after last week?s resignation, is being held culpable for the embarrassing and shambolic wardrobe malfunctions which heaped worldwide ridicule on Brisbane as they crashed out of the AFC Champions League 3-2 in their qualifier against unfancied Filipinos Ceres-Negros.

The sight of shirt numbers peeling off and substitute Eric Bautheac marooned on the sideline for more than five minutes without a duplicate after the No.22 peeled off his back.

This left Roar vice-chairman Chris Fong ?flabbergasted and embarrassed? and pointing the finger squarely at outgoing football director Moore saying "the buck stops with him".

Thwarted from attempting to return in a No.30, the Frenchman was permitted to rejoin his 10 teammates with the No.77 sticky-taped to look like a 22, in scenes of high farce.

Vowing to restore the credibility and pride of the stricken three-time champions, Fong said Moore?s soon-to-be announced successor would be closely monitored and the club would be lifting its game across the board.

?I was flabbergasted with images and footage I saw,? said Fong amidst a pitiless social media backlash pillorying and parodying the club.

?I couldn?t believe what I was seeing ... it was disgusting that we could allow ourselves to be brought down to this level. It?s indicative of what has be

Club statement following last night's result

Brisbane Roar FC is very disappointed to have been knocked out of the 2018 AFC Champions League competition on Tuesday night.
The club understands the result against Ceres-Negros FC was disappointing and the performance was unacceptable.

We have always worn our orange jersey with pride.

Last night, our club disappointed many people and embarrassed ourselves with the presentation of numbering on our orange jersey. This was of no fault of BRFC kit manufacturer Umbro and we are unreservedly apologetic.
BRFC would like to assure its members, supporters, partners and the local football community that we are fully committed to improving both on and off the field.
We have ten (10) remaining Hyundai A-League and two (2) Westfield W-League regular season matches which are of huge importance to everyone.

Every effort will be made to make sure season 2017/18 is a success, starting with Saturday?s away game in Gosford against Central Coast Mariners.
Following last night's result, Managing Director David Pourre said, "Brisbane Roar FC respects the right of individuals who support the club to express their dissatisfaction with the current situation. We must, and we will continue to strive for the high standards expected of our club."

BRFC will not be making any further comment at this time.
