One of the amazing things about Ange is that as soon as he becomes coach in any scenario, he immediately distances himself, socially, from other assistant coaches, support staff and players, even if they are friends.
When he coached South Melb, Paul Trmboli was one of his best mates. Trimmers was captain of the team.
From that time onwards, whilst coach Ange stopped socialising with Trimmers altogether. Ange also says he is quite gregarious, but not with his colleagues. He always wants professional distance in order to make objective calls about anyone he works with at any given time.
Even now, when the Socceroos support staff go out together for meals, Ange doesn't go with them! He stays in his room.
