Ange Postecoglou has opened up about the ambitions that he still has in football. Since joining Celtic, the manager has totally transformed the club and made huge strides in the standard of players Celtic and quality of football being played by the team. However, Ange isn’t a young manager, and he has admitted that his time is limited in the sport and he still has things he wants to achieve in the time he has left.
Speaking to 10 Football, Ange replied to queries regarding how long he would remain at Celtic. Ange is aware of his age and takes this into consideration when answering.
“I’ll always go where the challenge is greatest and I still have some stuff I want to conquer. But I am 57, to be fair. I’m not 47 or 37, so there are limited years ahead of me.”
“There is a run to the finish line and I want to make sure when I get there that I have done everything I wanted to do. There are still some horizons I need to conquer!”
“I have never sort of thought that way. What I am doing is most important to me. I want to have as much success as I can, whether that takes me somewhere else or I stay where I am.”
Thankfully for the Celtic fans, Ange doesn’t seem to have any intention to leave Paradise anytime soon, as he believes that he has a responsibility to bring success to the club. However, he does hint that circumstances can change very quickly in this profession.
“I have never sort of thought that way. What I am doing is most important to me. I want to have as much success as I can, whether that takes me somewhere else or I stay where I am. But football is a funny world. This time last year I was favourite to be sacked before Christmas so things change pretty quickly.
“I have a big responsibility to bring as much success to Celtic as I can. If I do that, I will be in a good space professionally and personally.”
The Celtic Star will be speaking to Ange today at the pre-match media conference…
