Wed 24 February 2021 | 7:14

Former Socceroos’ defender took the role on August 26 2020 and was dismissed after just nine games into the season while the club are currently fifth in the Greek second division.

While

Harry Kewell

remains in charge of English League Two side

Oldham

,

Popovic

joins

Kevin Muscat

, who got sacked from Belgian top tier club,

Sint-Truiden

in December after just 14 games in charge.

Former Socceroos boss,

Ange Postecoglou

, believes Australians are judged harsher in foreign coaching roles than other nationalities.

"Having that Australian passport means we have to start at the bottom,"

the J-League winning coach told

Optus Sport

.

"I know that is not going to deter the likes of Popa and Muscy and I have no doubt they will eventually work their way up.

"They have the years ahead of them. I will be super pleased to see them one day coaching at the highest level."
