Postecoglou signs for Tottenham Hotspur on a four-year-deal

Ange Postecoglou has been announced as the new Tottenham Hotspur manager. The former Celtic coach has signed a four-year deal with the English side. After holding non-fruitful talks with other managers, the club today have finally agreed a deal with Postecoglou.

The north London club has not had a manager since the sacking of Antonio Conte in March. Conte left the club by mutual consent after branding Spurs players 'selfish'. Since then, the club has been searching for a full-time successor to Conte.

After a breakdown in reported talks with Arne Slot and former Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann, the club seems to have found a solution to their managerial vacancy.

The 57-year-old first led the Australian National Team to win the AFC Asian Cup in 2015 and Brisbane Roar to multiple A-League titles. In 2019, he secured the J1 League title with Yokohama F. Marinos in Japan.

After moving to Celtic, Postecoglou's arrival was jeered and mocked by fans, but with the help of shrewd signings and progressive football, he won Celtic fans over. The Australian went on to win five domestic trophies in six years and a treble in his two years at Celtic.

Speaking on the Spurs website, Daniel Levy said, "Ange brings a positive mentality and a fast, attacking style of play. He has a strong track record of developing players and an understanding of the importance of the link from the academy - everything that is important to our Club. We are excited to have Ange join us as we prepare for the season ahead."

The club also announced that the Australian's backroom staff will be announced in due course

The new Spurs boss also thanked Celtic and the supporters for their support of his ideas during his two-year stint at Celtic

“It was an honour to be asked to be Celtic manager and during my two years I have given everything I have to deliver success to our supporters. Culminating in the Treble at the weekend, my players and backroom team have been brilliant for me on this journey," he said on Celtic's website

"They have given us all some fantastic moments through their energy and effort, creating real quality, winning football.

“Our supporters have been magnificent to me and I thank them for the way they have embraced me during the past two years. My ambition was always to give our fans a team they could be proud of, a team people talked about and I think we have achieved that.

“Celtic is a phenomenal football club, and so much more - and I will forever be a supporter of this great institution. I wish everyone connected with Celtic nothing but continued success.”

Postecoglou's job now will be steering Tottenham back into the Champions League and competing for silverware.
