Melbourne Victory has bolstered its defensive stocks with the signing of Australia goalkeeper Nathan Coe on a three-year deal.
The 28 year-old was unveiled by the club on Wednesday, before joining his new teammates for his first training session on Gosch’s Paddock.
Coe, who's international career has been resurrected by Socceroos coach Holger Osieck in recent years, graduated from the Australian Institute of Sport in 2001, before embarking on an international career that featured stints at PSV, Inter Milan and Copenhagen. He returns to Australia, having spent the last two league at Danish Super League club Sonderjyske Elitesport.
“We are delighted to welcome Nathan to Melbourne Victory,” Victory coach Ange 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."
Time supposedly heals all wounds, but one month on from the A-League grand final and Western Sydney captain Michael Beauchamp is still hurting.
