Nick Montgomery took his place in the Hibs dugout for the first time this weekend at Rugby Park, watching his side make a dream start before fumbling a two goal lead to leave Ayrshire with a point.
The former Central Coast Mariners boss said after wards that losing a goal from a set piece would ‘annoy him for a little while’ but admitted there were positives to take from his maiden fixture.
PLZ Soccer spoke exclusively to AussieScout to get the lowdown on the new man and what Hibees can expect going forward.
He took charge of the Mariners’ academy senior team after he retired and was involved in the recruitment of many talented young players – including Alou and Garang Kuol – who have since been sold to VfB Stuttgart and Newcastle United.
He clearly values youth and his starting elevens often featured more than 6 Australian U23 players.
It’s hard to say. He’s a talented manager and was brilliant at the Mariners. You don’t want to put limits on anyone.
