Brisbane Roar striker Besart Berisha celebrates his goal against Melbourne Victroy.

A-League champions Brisbane made it a very unhappy return to Lang Park for former coach Ange Postecoglou, dishing out a 5-0 drubbing of the Victory on Saturday night.

Postecoglous watched on helplessly as Brisbane Roar silenced the Victory fans. In his first match against the team he mentored to two titles Ange no doubt felt the pressure on Saturday night.

Two goals came from Striker Besart Berisha while fellow stars Thomas Broich, Erik Paartalu and Mitch Nichols all found the back of the net.

Victory’s defence was well and truly down.

It was the first time in Victory’s history they suffered a 5-0 loss, and after last weeks loss to rivals Heart, this was the salt added to the early season wound.

Roar veteran Shane Steffanuto said the Roar’s focus during the week was more internal than worrying about Postecoglou’s return.

Stepping out of Ange Postecoglou’s shadow was always going to be hard for the Brisbane Roar.

However they put their best foot forward and came home with a win.
