Josep Gombau has been announced as the new coach of the Olyroos and will also take up a role on Ange Postecoglou's Socceroos coaching staff.

The Spaniard, who made a big impression during his A-League stint as Adelaide United coach, takes over the Australian under-23 team after Aurelio Vidmar was axed in March in the wake of a failed Rio Olympics qualifying campaign.

"Josep will assist in ensuring the next generation of players are ready to step into the national team but importantly also give them the best possible opportunity to qualify for the next Olympics," said Postecoglou in a Football Federation statement announcing the appointment.
