“Bodo is a city of 50,000 people. Their stadium has 6,000 people.
“But you get the right coach and the right kind of mentality, then you can play that kind of football.”

Postecoglou is eager for a higher goal in the conference league for its league leaders and the winners of the Premier Sports Cup.

“For me, it’s about constantly exposing your players to that level and playing your football.
“We have a big challenge for Bodo / Gilmit.
“You play into these things to try and succeed. If you have the opportunity, why waste it?”
“If we don’t succeed, we will dust ourselves off and go again next year.
“But you don’t just enter to participate and potentially miss the opportunity to create something.”

“Whether it’s with his club or with the international team, he wants to experience it all.
“The thing I hope for is that the dressing room is full of that, and that’s the kind of player we’ve brought.
“They are very ambitious, very driven, and want to be the best. If you have a dressing room full of them, it helps you move forward.
“Joseph is going to the World Cup. I’m sure Colm McGregor and the Scottish boys want it too. Tommy Rojak, Kyogo and the Japanese boys.
