Lowy has also honored another part of his thinking about the new coach as he earlier stated he wanted a coach for the long term and has done so signing Postecoglu on for five years taking him through to the end of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
It's going to be a tough job for Postecoglu to turn the side around after poor performances in their recent friendlies Postecoglu has a battle ahead of him to get the side ready.
Postecoglu has an impressive record as a manager with four Australian championships and two premierships while also sending South Melbourne to an impressive showing at the 2000 FIFA Club World Championships.
It's not Postecoglu's first foray in to international management, having managed he Young Socceroos from 2000-2007, his stint there famously ending following a verbal battle with SBS Analyst Craig Foster who called on him to quit following an unsuccessful World Cup.
