After the Socceroos were sent packing from the 2019 Asian Cup, coach Graham Arnold is reportedly interested in a return to club football with Scottish side Hibernian.
According to ESPN, the Australian coach has shown interest in succeeding current Hibs boss Neil Lennon, who has been suspended by the club and faces an uncertain future.
While Lennon is yet to be sacked, all signs point to his eventual dismissal with Arnold now a seemingly surprise candidate to replace him.
His official national team focus now turns to the Olyroos with Arnold insisting his style of play will take time to implement with the green and gold, but a return to club management could now well be on the cards.
Hibernian are home to three Socceroos at the moment in the form of Jamie Maclaren, Martin Boyle and Mark Milligan.
Though winning plenty of silverware in the A-League, Arnold's one brief taste of overseas management saw him take the reins of Japanese side Vegalta Sendai - where he failed to win any of his six games in charge.
