Paul Trimboli has joined Ange Postecoglou at Melbourne Victory, signing on as football operations manager on a one-year term.

Trimboli joins his friend and former Brisbane Roar colleague Postecoglou after two seasons of unprecedented success in Queensland, and will take on a similar role with Victory.

Trimboli said he was excited by the prospect of a new challenge.

“While I enjoyed my time with Brisbane Roar and made many great friends, Melbourne was always home, so when this opportunity presented itself, I felt that it was the right one for me," Trimboli said.

“Ange and I have known one another for a very long time, so to be able to continue working alongside him - albeit at a different club - is a fantastic result for me."

Having only been at the club for two months, Postecoglou has wasted no time building his back room team and Trimboli-s addition was seen as a vital component of his plans.

“We-re trying to build a new football department structure at the club and having someone of Paul-s capabilities behind the scenes was extremely important to me,” Postecoglou said.

“Not only was Paul a highly respected player, but the wide ranging experience he-s acquired since retiring has been very impressive too and I saw the benefits of his skills set first-hand at Brisbane Roar."
