Journalist Tom Roddy claims Ange Postecoglou is tempted by the Tottenham job
Speaking on the Sky Sports podcast, journalist Tom Roddy has claimed that despite saying otherwise, Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou is really swayed by the Tottenham Hotspur interest and is likely to join them.
Tottenham Hotspur have been the subject of much speculation in recent weeks, with the club reportedly considering a move for Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou. The 57-year-old Australian tactician has had a remarkable stint with the Scottish giants.
According to journalist Tom Roddy, Postecoglou’s head has been turned by the interest from the North London club, indicating that his departure from Celtic this summer is highly likely
“What he’s achieved at Celtic has been nothing short of impressive. Stepping into a challenging situation after Steven Gerrard’s triumph in Scotland, he managed to turn the tide and guide Celtic to consecutive league titles. I’ve heard whispers suggesting that his mind may have wandered towards Tottenham”
Postecoglou’s track record at Celtic speaks for itself. His attacking philosophy and progressive style of play could be the perfect fit for Tottenham. The London-based club boasts a formidable attacking lineup, featuring the likes of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, and Richarlison, who would undoubtedly thrive under Postecoglou’s system.
Beyond his tactical prowess, Ange Postecoglou has shown an ability to deliver silverware, a quality that Tottenham is in dire need of at present. Having narrowly missed out on a top-four finish and a spot in the Champions League, Spurs require a manager who can rejuvenate the squad and reestablish their credentials as a top-tier club.
With expectations running high, Postecoglou would be tasked with the immediate challenge of securing a top-four finish and persuading key players, such as Harry Kane, to remain at the club.
Fortunately, the Australian manager possesses a wealth of experience and a proven track record across various leagues, making him a suitable candidate to make his mark in the highly competitive Premier League.
A move to Spurs would undoubtedly represent a significant step up for Postecoglou, both in terms of the club’s stature and the challenges that lie ahead. However, his impressive achievements at Celtic have earned him recognition and a platform to showcase his abilities on a grander stage.
Should he make the move to Tottenham, fans can expect an ambitious and progressive manager who will leave no stone unturned in his pursuit of success. However, we must back him to the hilt and also give him time to succeed.
