A-League-winning coach Ange Postecoglou says he'll decide this week whether to stay at Brisbane Roar or take up a lucrative offer from Melbourne Victory.

Despite leading Brisbane to their second successive championship on Sunday night, Postecoglou appears set to leave the club.

Melbourne is home for Postecoglou and he said on Monday his decision was imminent.

"We'll have some talks (with Roar officials) this week and I'm sure there will be a resolution this week and we will move on from there.

"Right now I'm enjoying being the coach of the championship-winning side."

The Roar became the first A-League club to claim back-to-back championships after a heart-stopping 2-1 grand final win over Perth Glory at Suncorp Stadium.

Postecoglou rated the triumph even sweeter than last year's title due to the extra challenges faced in 2011-12.

Brisbane lost a series of players, including influential captain Matt McKay, have had to endure an Asian Champions League campaign and were also targeted more heavily by rival clubs.

"It's definitely more satisfying because we've done it this way," he said.

"It's a difficult ask and these boys have worked really bloody hard to get where we are."
