Tottenham Hotspur eyeing Ange Postecoglou as managerial search draws to a close!
Tottenham is interested in having discussions with Ange Postecoglou regarding their vacant managerial position after Celtic’s Scottish Cup final against Inverness.
The Premier League club is expected to formally request permission from Celtic to speak to the Australian coach after Saturday’s match. Tottenham intends to show respect for Celtic and Postecoglou’s involvement in an important fixture, as the coach himself has emphasized that he is solely focused on the game against Inverness Caledonian Thistle and not the intense speculation about his future.
Earlier this week, it was reported that Postecoglou has emerged as the top candidate to permanently succeed Antonio Conte at Tottenham Hotspur. However, Luis Enrique, Roberto De Zerbi, and Marco Silva are also among the names being considered for the role by Spurs.
Tottenham is still in search of a permanent manager after Arne Slot recently announced his decision to stay at Feyenoord. In the meantime, former Spurs midfielder Ryan Mason has taken charge on an interim basis, taking over from Cristian Stellini, who filled in after Antonio Conte’s departure in March.
Ange Postecoglou, who has an impressive record of 82 wins out of 112 games as Celtic’s manager, is on the verge of securing a domestic treble in Scotland. They are set to face Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the Scottish Cup final on Saturday, having already claimed the Premiership and League Cup titles.
Despite being linked with a move to Tottenham, Postecoglou has made it clear that such speculation doesn’t affect him. He is fully focused on preparing his team for the upcoming important match on Saturday. He emphasized that his mind is solely dedicated to the task at hand and that he has worked diligently to bring his team to this position.
Throughout the season, Postecoglou has been linked with various Premier League positions, including those at Everton and Chelsea. However, he is confident that his players will not be distracted by the recent interest from Tottenham. He believes that they understand his priorities and are adept at concentrating on what truly matters: getting ready for the significant challenge they face on Saturday.
Postecoglou expressed his unwavering commitment to ensuring his team is thoroughly prepared for the next hurdle and stated that the prospect of a cup final is more than enough to command his complete attention, “It doesn’t enter my sphere of thinking because my role is to make sure my team is absolutely prepared for whatever the next challenge is. Far be it from me to say that if a cup final isn’t enough for me to draw all my attention to that then nothing will be.”
