Trevor Sinclair thinks Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou could be using Tottenham Hotspur to land the Manchester City job in the future.
On Sunday, it was suggested that Tottenham are closing in on appointing Ange Postecoglou as their next manager after he secured the treble in the colours of Celtic this season.
Of course, going from the Scottish Premiership to the English Premier League is a step up, but for Sinclair, he thinks Ange Postecoglou could use the Spurs gig as a ‘stepping stone’ to one day replace Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, as he told talkSPORT.
Now, it’s one thing winning the treble in Glasgow and the Parkhead faithful will be forever grateful for what their manager has done.
But the road Guardiola is about to embark on – a Champions League final win away from winning the treble as an English team – is levels of a different kind.
Nonetheless, when discussing Postecoglou’s future amid those Tottenham links, Sinclair explains why he feels there is a chance with Manchester City in the long run.
“But it could be a stepping stone,” said Sinclair. “He has worked for the City Group twice already.
“By all accounts, they (Scott Munn, now at Spurs and previously at Man City) are massive fans of his. They have a lot of respect for him. That’s the only way he gets the Man City (job). He has to prove himself in the Premier League first.
“I am not saying that (everything is about getting to Man City). Like we have already seen, there is a pattern. He has worked for two City Group clubs already.”
ANGE POSTECOGLOU WOULD BRING ENTERTAINMENT TO TOTTENHAM
Forget about the winning, or the lack of trophy success, what has also annoyed the Spurs fans is the lack of entertainment during their years of decline.
Three defensive-minded coaches have played a part in that, but for Chris Sutton, if Ange were to get appointed, then all of that will change.
As a starting point, it’s something that will bring a smile to the faces of Spurs fans because Postecoglou likes his forward line playing with energy and his team being on the front foot.
