Socceroos goalkeeper Nathan Coe has today been announced as Melbourne Victory-s newest recruit.
The 28 year-old was presented to the media at his new AAMI Park home this morning, before joining his Victory teammates for his first training session on Gosch-s Paddock.
Melbourne Victory Coach Ange Postecoglou said Coe-s addition to the squad was of great significance.
“We are delighted to welcome Nathan to Melbourne Victory,” Postecoglou said.
“I coached Nathan in the early stages of his career at various national team levels and he-s not only a committed footballer, but he is also a great character to have in the change room.
“Nathan has been part of some massive clubs throughout his career to date and his experience in Europe, as well as with the Socceroos, will be invaluable - both on and off the pitch,” Postecoglou added.
Coe has joined Melbourne Victory on a three-year deal and will train with the squad during this morning-s session on Gosch-s Paddock.
