Ange bombshell: Postecoglou to quit in November

ANGE Postecoglou will sensationally walk away from his Socceroos coaching post in November, even if they qualify for a World Cup berth.

It is understood that Postecoglou, 52, would have quit last month if the Socceroos had qualified automatically for Russia 2018.

But after Japan and Syria pipped Australia in the group, Postecoglou felt compelled to stay on and complete the unfinished task of qualification, clearing the first hurdle on Tuesday night with a 2-1 (3-2 aggregate) win over Syria.

A trigger for his shock decision is believed to be the relentless attacks from critics in recent months with Postecoglou of the view he is being undermined.

"He is definitely moving on after November," a source close to Postecoglou said.
