New Socceroos coach Graham Arnold is embarking on a whirlwind charm offensive to build relationships with clubs in England and Europe, starting with Celtic where Tomi Rogic and Daniel Arzani ply their trade..
After a week-long camp in Antalya, Turkey, getting to know his players better, Arnold jets off to Scotland on Wednesday to meet with The Hoops boss, Brendan Rodgers.
The 55-year-old has set aside the coming weeks to lay the proper diplomatic foundations with the clubs of Socceroos, hoping to set the right tone when it comes to "borrowing players" during international windows.
"If we can make that work well, which we will, then the relationship will make the players even better," Arnold said.
"Tomorrow I'm off to Scotland to visit Brendan Rodgers at Celtic, then Hearts, Hibs with Neil Lennon and then I'll shoot down to England."
After the UK, Arnold plans to visit clubs in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. Assistant coach Andrew Clark and physio Phil Coles will also be clocking up the frequent flyer miles.
Arnold added: "Phil Coles will be going round to nearly all the players that have got injury problems - Mathew Leckie, Brandon Borrello, Tomi Rogic - and checking up on them to see that they're okay...Jimmy Jeggo, down in Austria.
"Andrew Clark will be going to Saudi Arabia to do the Saudi Arabian boys, then across to Korea and Japan to see Andrew Nabbout and then we all connect back up in October for a friendly."
