Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou is close to sealing a deal to join Tottenham Hotspur. The North London club are searching for a new manager after Antonio Conte left by mutual consent in March.
Spurs supremo Daniel Levy wanted a manager that could reinvigorate the club and bring an attractive brand of football. This search eventually led him to the Celtic manager.
According to The Athletic, Tottenham will step up their pursuit of Ange with a deal expected to be completed in the next few days. Ange will likely be confirmed as the new Spurs Head Coach, ending a successful and meteoric time at Celtic.
There was a feeling yesterday that he was saying goodbye. With two seasons and five trophies at the club, there was a feeling that we wouldn’t enjoy Ange forever. Now, it appears that he is set to depart and will do so with our best wishes.
It is a blow to Celtic fans but yesterday’s Treble success was the perfect send-off to Ange. The Australian is 57 and has had to bide his time to get to Europe. The Spurs job is certainly one of the most appealing in the English game given their vast wealth and facilities. However, the adulation that was directed from the stands at Hampden (and since he arrived) will not be replicated in London.
