Roar’s Asian am­bi­tion

Townsville Bulletin - - Football -

BRIS­BANE Roar coach Ange Postecoglou is look­ing be­yond the A-League grand fi­nal and dream­ing of win­ning the Asian Cham­pi­ons League with the team that has rein­vented Aus­tralian club soc­cer. The all-con­quer­ing Roar are through to the grand fi­nal next week, but have al­ready booked an ACL place for next sea­son af­ter win­ning the Premiers’ Plate. Ja­panese gi­ants Gamba Osaka this week high­lighted the gulf be­tween the J-League and A-League, smash­ing Mel­bourne Vic­tory 5-1 in their ACL opener. ‘‘ I’d love to have a go at try­ing to win the competition,’’ Postecoglou said. ‘‘ The po­ten­tial is there for this club to be one of the big clubs in Aus­tralia and maybe in Asia.’’
