The Socceroos new head coach is heading to Newcastle.

Bert van Marwijk has announced plans to scout three A-League matches this weekend ahead of the World Cup in Russia in June.

One of those fixtures is the Jets game against Melbourne Victory at McDonald Jones Stadium on Saturday.

"I’m happy to be here and to watch Friday, Saturday and Sunday the A-League and see the players and the level of the players here in Australia."

"Most players I know but to know them and see them is a big difference. I want to see them playing and in particular the player."

"It's a big challenge, especially because we have not so much time. I have to get to know the players, in a short time."

The 65-year-old Dutchman flew into the country today after taking over the role vacated by Ange Postecoglou.
