Ange Postecoglou shortlisted for prestigious award, Celtic impact recognised

Former Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou has been named on the FIFA Men’s Coach of the Year shortlist. The Australian led Celtic to a Treble before departing for Tottenham Hotspur earlier this year.

Now, he has been recognised along with the likes of Pep Guardiola on the shortlist.

It is astonishing to see, in this day and age, a manager being recognised for the work that they have done in Scottish football at the elite level. Postecoglou certainly has the hallmarks of being an elite coach and hopefully he can guide Spurs towards success.

The 58-year-old enjoyed enormous success in his two years as Celtic manager before the draw of the Premier League took him to London. Despite arriving as an unknown quantity, Ange developed Celtic into an incredible attacking outfit, winning five out of a possible six domestic trophies and doing so with fluid, attractive football.

Postecoglou has had an initial impact at Spurs with fans fawning over his humble personality and razor-sharp wit. Big wins with Spurs against Man United and Burnley have fans wondering if he is the answer to their prayers. Time will tell and his success will reflect well on Celtic.
