What’s the news?

Tottenham Hotspur officially confirmed on Tuesday the arrival of Ange Postecoglou. The Australian coach comes from Scottish club Celtic, where he won the championship for the past two years. The new manager has signed a four-year contract in London with the aim of bringing the club back into the top four of the Premier League.

What more?

With his move to Tottenham, Postecoglou becomes the very first Australian manager in the Premier League. The 57-year-old manager is experienced and has won several awards, particularly in Asia and Australia. He won the Australian A-League with Brisbane Roar and the Japanese J-League with Yokohama Marinos in 2019. At Celtic, he won two league titles in two seasons and even secured the domestic treble last season.

The backstory

After the dismissal of Antonio Conte and the departure of his successor Cristian Stellini, Spurs were in search of a new manager. Over the past few weeks, the club had been linked with various names from home and abroad, and they ultimately chose the Australian.

Club Statement

In Tottenham’s official statement, chairman Daniel Levy expressed his delight at Postecoglou’s arrival: “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.”
