AFL360 co-host Mark Robinson believes a combination of Paul Roos and Michael Voss could team up at Carlton in 2020.
Roos has continually been asked about coming out of retirement to coach the Blues, and once again failed to rule himself of out the job on On The Couch on Monday night, suggesting the Blues’ job could require more than just one young coach.
“I think whether it’s this year with North (Melbourne) or Carlton, or moving forward, the role is just far too big to put a young coach in and actually do it,” Roos said on Fox Footy.
“Would I do it? I don’t know, I mean, I enjoy what I’m doing now.
“Is there a different model? There is. There’s certainly gonna be some opportunity for some people to fill those roles.”
Following on from Roos’ comments, Robinson took to AFL360 on Tuesday night, suggesting he can see the pairing of Roos and Voss at Ikon Park next season.
“I honestly think that the Michael Voss-Paul Roos suggestion is pretty strong. Roosy’s still not ruling anything out On the Couch every Monday,” Robinson said.
“I can see Paul Roos at Carlton next year. And I can see him with Michael Voss. I really can.”
Anthony Hudson was co-hosting on Tuesday night, and backed the Roos-Voss pairing.
“The Roos-Voss combination is a good one,” he said on AFL 360.
“I do think the debate around, and Roosy talks about the managerial role, versus what Rhyce Shaw is doing right now as that emotional kind of coach. Not emotional rah-rah but the emotional connection with the players.
“And you think how Nathan Buckley has changed – it’s not so much being a better manager, that’s part of it – but it’s connecting with the players.”
