Only reporters actually attending today’s Yokohama Marinos v Honda Emperors Cup tie will get post match access to Ange Postecoglou.

Since the Australian was linked with the vacant manager’s job at there has been an increasing media focus on Yokohama matches and the post match comments of their Australian manager.

Over the last year there has been a tendency to manage media access through Zoom calls which reduces the chances of follow up questions or another reporter picking up on a theme with a new angle.

After Sunday’s J League draw away to Consadole Sapporo Postecoglou quickly closed down his media conference after giving a stock answer about his focus being on Yokohama.

Following the announcement that had turned down the offer to manage the club is badly in need of getting someone in the door to move the story on from the failure to land the former boss.

If deals have been agreed with Yokohama and Postecoglou will turn their attention to the issues of a Work Permit and getting around the requirement for a Pro Coaching Licence.
