Ballarat will be seeing a lot more of Socceroos legend John Aloisi following his commitment to stay on as head coach of the A-League’s Western United for another two years.
It comes after the green and blacks’ re-commitment to its contract with the City of Ballarat as its home- away-from-home, and the club’s plans of becoming the team of Western Victoria.
General Manager of Football Mal Impiombato said Aloisi’s impact on the Club’s culture and his immediate understanding of its purpose meant he was the perfect leader to move into the future.
“John has bought into our vision, our identity and our philosophy as a Club from the moment he arrived,” he said.
“Last season, John was able to entrench our values into our playing group and extend on the existing foundations developed by the Club, leading us to the A-League Men’s Championship.”
Western United return to Ballarat for their final home and away game of the year on Good Friday, April 7 against the Central Coast Mariners.
