Okon to coach Australian club

29 August 2016, 14:43

Sydney - Australia's Central Coast Mariners have appointed former Socceroo and national youth coach Paul Okon as head coach for the next two A-League seasons, the club said Monday.

Okon, 44, who had playing spells with Club Brugge, Leeds United and Lazio in Europe, replaces Tony Walmsley, who was sacked earlier this month.

Midfielder Okon, who played 28 times for Australia, has spent the last four years as the national under-20s head coach.

"In Paul we have an outstanding candidate that covers all areas for us," Mariners executive Peter Storrie said ahead of the new season kick-off on October 7.

"His extensive knowledge of young players across the country, understanding of the A-League and understanding of the Central Coast Mariners were crucial decision making factors."

The Mariners, A-League champions just three years ago, are looking to reverse their fortunes after winning just three games and finishing bottom last season.
