    New Manager Alert: Ange Postecoglou departs Celtic to take over at Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham Hotspur Appoints Ange Postecoglou as New Manager

    Tottenham Hotspur has found its new manager, and it is none other than Ange Postecoglou. The 57-year-old Australian takes over the reins of Spurs from Jose Mourinho, Nuno Espirito Santo, and Antonio Conte. He signed a four-year contract with the club after leaving Celtic. Postecoglou’s appointment comes after Tottenham spent ten weeks searching for Conte’s successor. Several big names in football were linked to the role at some point, including Julian Nagelsmann, Luis Enrique, Arne Slot, Graham Potter, Julen Lopetegui, Brendan Rodgers and Mauricio Pochettino – Tottenham’s previous manager who led them to the Champions League final in 2019. “We are excited to have Ange join us,” said Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy on Postecoglou’s arrival. “Ange brings a positive mentality and a fast attacking style of play that aligns perfectly with our goals.” Postecoglou arrives at Tottenham having won successive Scottish Premiership titles during his two seasons in charge at Celtic – where he claimed five out of six available trophies during his tenure. As one of only five managers ever to secure a domestic clean sweep with Celtic (Jock Stein Martin O’Neill Brendan Rodgers Neil Lennon), he is well qualified for this challenging task ahead of him. With several changes going on behind-the-scenes at Spurs – such as former sporting director Fabio Paratici stepping down after losing an appeal against a 30-month ban from football – there are similarities between what Postecoglou faces now compared to when he took over Celtic last year. At that time chief executive Peter Lawwell had been replaced by Dominic McKay; Nick Hammond stepped down as head of football operations; long-serving captain Scott Brown left for Aberdeen while addressing future uncertainty surrounding striker Harry Kane will also be high on his agenda. Postecoglou’s career in football started as a player with South Melbourne, where he played under Ferenc Puskas, the legendary Hungarian to whom Postecoglou attributes his coaching philosophy. He stepped into management with South Melbourne in 1996 before winning back-to-back A-League titles with Brisbane Roar between 2009 and 2012. After a season with Melbourne Victory, he became manager of Australia in 2013 and guided them to the 2014 World Cup. Tottenham fans are hoping that Postecoglou will bring some much-needed stability and success to their club after enduring just one top-four finish in four seasons since reaching the Champions League final against Liverpool in Madrid two years ago. Only time will tell if this appointment is what Spurs need to return themselves to prominence domestically and internationally. But for now, Tottenham Hotspur fans can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that they have finally found their new man at the helm – Ange Postecoglou!
