Brisbane Roar coach Mike Mulvey believes newly appointed Socceroos boss Ange Postecoglou shouldn't lead Melbourne Victory out for one last match on Friday night.
Postecoglou was appointed as Holger Osieck's successor on Wednesday but will take charge of Victory for the final time when his side host Brisbane.
But Mulvey insists Postecoglou should already be focused on the Socceroos.
"I'm quite amazed that he's actually coaching this game against us because I thought he's already got another job," he said. "If you're holding one job, I find it difficult to understand that you can do two jobs at once. But that's the way it is."
Friday night's match is expected to attract a significant crowd for Postecoglou's farewell and Mulvey continued the mind games by suggesting Victory have struggled to hit their stride this season.
"I'll tell you why it's big for them - they haven't got a win on the board," he added. "They've played two games and they've drawn two games. There were scenes of delirium (last week in Adelaide) when they got one point."
Brisbane will be without the injured Besart Berisha.
