Redknapp most recently coached Jordan in a two-game stint back in March, with the 69-year-old enjoying a 8-0 win over Bangladesh before his side were humbled 5-1 by the Socceroos in Sydney.

After graduating from the Australian Institute of Sport, Rose signed with the Central Coast Mariners in 2013. ‘Junior’ made his Hyundai A-League debut as a substitute against Adelaide United in February 2015.

This season the Young Socceroo had an invaluable opportunity to work alongside UEFA Champions League winner Luis Garcia who assisted with the development of his attacking game.
