Tottenham set to appoint Ange Postecoglou as next manager
According to The Athletic, Tottenham Hotspur is nearing the end of their search for a new head coach, with Ange Postecoglou poised to take over the position.
This comes after a period of uncertainty for the club since parting ways with Antonio Conte in March. Postecoglou, who recently guided Celtic to a domestic treble, has been highly regarded during his two-year tenure at the Scottish club, and a deal to bring him to North London is expected to be finalized soon.
The appointment of a new manager, in the form of Postecoglou, is a much-needed step towards stability for Spurs. The team had a disappointing end to the season, finishing eighth and missing out on European qualification.
After Conte’s departure, Cristian Stellini took over as interim manager before being replaced by Ryan Mason. Levy, the chairman of Tottenham Hotspur, will be hopeful that the arrival of Postecoglou marks the end of a challenging period for the club.
A Glance at Postecoglou’s career
Postecoglou, who successfully led Celtic to reclaim the Scottish Premier League title from rivals Rangers in his debut season, faces the task of rebuilding morale at Tottenham.
The 57-year-old coach has an impressive track record, having achieved success at Brisbane Roar and Melbourne Victory before taking on the Australia national team job.
Although he resigned before the 2018 World Cup in Russia, he was instrumental in guiding Australia to qualification for the tournament. Following his stint with the national team, Postecoglou managed Yokohama F. Marinos in Japan.
Despite his relative lack of experience at the highest level, he brings an attractive style of football and has previously managed in the Champions League.
Tottenham had also considered other candidates for the managerial role, including Julian Nagelsmann, Luis Enrique, and Arne Slot from Feyenoord.
