Tottenham reach agreement with Celtic boss to become their new manager

Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou has agreed to become Tottenham’s new manager on a two-year contract.

The Australian, 57, has just finished his second season at Celtic, leading them to the Scottish title both years and the domestic treble this term.

Since Antonio Conte’s departure in March, Cristian Stellini and then Ryan Mason have served as interim managers for Tottenham.

Before making an announcement, the last few details of the agreement are being worked out.

Athens-born Prior to joining Celtic in 2021, Postecoglou had only managed the Greek lower division team Panachaiki for a brief period in 2008.

With South Melbourne and Brisbane Roar, he won the Australian championship. With Yokohama F Marinos, he won the Japanese top division. He also guided the Australian national team to victory in the 2015 Asian Cup.

For the first time since 2009–10, Postecoglou takes over a Tottenham team that finished seventh in the Premier League.

Since the firing of Mauricio Pochettino in 2019, he replaces Jose Mourinho, Nuno Espirito Santo, and Conte as the London club’s fourth permanent manager.

Since his arrival in Scotland in the summer of 2021, Postecoglou has won five out of a potential six titles, reinstating Celtic as the dominant force in the nation.

He acknowledged that, with Celtic having just finished 25 points behind Rangers, he was viewed as a “joke” when he came over.

But he joins Jock Stein, Martin O’Neill, Brendan Rodgers, and Neil Lennon as the only five managers to give Celtic a domestic sweep.
